People v. Stuart (Cal. Ct. App. - Oct. 18, 2007)

You might well -- indeed, probably will -- get away with it if you suffocate your 87-year old mother with a pillow while she's in a nursing home. Even if her death was entirely unexpected, everyone will just think she died of natural causes. Success.

Except, of course, if you promptly call your brother and tell him what you just did to his mother.

Not a good idea.
