Murder or Homicide, Confusion Buster

After  seeing various crime news on tv, I am wondering why a case was called homicide and another was murder. At first, I thought that the degree of brutality affects the naming; that was just my own perception .  But I have encountered few that however the crime is so brutal - it was just classified as homicide and not a murder case. Whew! My notions should then be corrected and I must not be ignorant of the laws in my country.

The difference between murder or homicide cases (speaking of my homeland, Philippines) really baffled me to the extent that my curiosity brought me to the shelves of Araullo University-Cabanatuan  City, my former alma mater's library.
