Case Description: Defendant (Sekhmet) is accused of first-degree murder in relation to the attack on mankind after Ra ordered her to punish evil men.

Case Status: Dismissed. Sekhmet did slaughter many humans and was only stopped with the timely application of a lake of red beer. But because she was ordered to kill by Ra, the killing was ruled an execution and not murder.
