 When someone is killed as a result of the fault of another this is termed a wrongful death. I'm talking about civil law not criminal law.  In Ohio under civil law the next of kin are entitled to recover money damages for their loss.

The damages include not only economic loss, but  also loss of care , comfort , guidance , protection , affection instruction , consortium  and the mental anguish suffered as a result of the death. These damages are available to the spouse, children , parents and other next of kin such as brothers, sister and other relatives.
