An individual who commits an altruistic murder shall not receive a punishment no greater than manslaughter in some specific cases. Lets say a mother and a child are in danger of being murdered by another human-being. The mother steps in and murders the person trying to kill her and her daughter. The mother shall not receive a punishment greater than manslaughter because it was a selfless act to save her and her childs life.

You are right but wrong. They both should face the same punishment. I believe they both should face capital punishment.
