An alleged robber and getaway driver are now charged with manslaughter after a homeowner killed their accomplices, police say.
The trouble began Nov. 10, when three people entered a trailer on the 700 block of Muldoon Road, demanding money and drugs, according to police. The man inside shot and killed two of the 19-year-old robbers, police say.
Now the alleged accomplices of the two men shot and killed face charges for both the robbery and the deaths. The robbers believed there was a marijuana grow at the trailer, the indictment says.

Here is the original story
This story says the shooter DID have a grow operation, but was clearly within his rights under Alaska law in defending himself with deadly force.

In Florida, the accomplices could face Murder 1 charges, murder in the course process of another felony.

I don’t get it. If there were no murder, how could the accomplices be charged with a felony murder?
“Felony Murder” is when a death happens while a felony is being committed. The death itself does not have to be a felony.

The “murder” accrues to the accomplices because they were part of a “criminal conspiracy”, i.e. they were all in it together (i.e. the act). If anyone had backed out of committing the crime, they would not have been charged with being an accomplice and subject to the “felony murder” charge.
Thanks for the succinct explanation.
