   A. A person commits murder in the first degree when that person
   unlawfully and with malice aforethought causes the death of another
   human being. Malice is that deliberate intention unlawfully to take
   away the life of a human being, which is manifested by external
   circumstances capable of proof.
   
   B. A person also commits the crime of murder in the first degree,
   regardless of malice, when that person or any other person takes the
   life of a human being during, or if the death of a human being results
   from, the commission or attempted commission of murder of another
   person, shooting or discharge of a firearm or crossbow with intent to
   kill, intentional discharge of a firearm or other deadly weapon into
   any dwelling or building as provided in Section 1289.17A of this
   title, forcible rape, robbery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping,
   escape from lawful custody, first degree burglary, first degree arson,

   maiming or using of unreasonable force by said person or who shall
   willfully cause, procure or permit any of said acts to be done upon
   the child pursuant to Section 7115 of Title 10 of the Oklahoma
   Statutes. It is sufficient for the crime of murder in the first degree
   that the person either willfully tortured or used unreasonable force
   upon the child or maliciously injured or maimed the child.
   
   D. A person commits murder in the first degree when that person
   unlawfully and with malice aforethought solicits another person or

   Substances Act, unlawfully possessing with intent to distribute or
