Sorry, that was how it seemed to me from your comments that EJ and John didn't die, but Trent did. It seemed that you were okay with EJ not being punished for shooting John because John didn't die. If that wasn't what you meant, I apologize for misunderstanding. That just seemed to be a distinction you were making.
Well, I do believe murder is a much more serious crime than attempted murder and so does the law thus the difference in penalty between the two. In a strict soap context, If they felt Lucas needed to pay for his crime of attempted murder by going away to prison for a few months, don't you think they would give Nick a more serious punishment for actual murder (unless they expect to play him as a straight villain from here forward)?

The story has not played out but simple drug dependency is not enough of an explanation for Nick to have murdered Trent but still continue on the canvas as a rootable character. They will need to make it in self defense, defense of another, or accidental.

I do not think attempted murder is "okay" simply because I see the difference in severity between murder and attempted murder as far as crimes go.
