Upon inspection of this most unfortunate scenario, I have come to the conclusion that the person responsible for

Person A's death was Person B. As the episode goes, Person A is targeted by two enemies, Person A and Person B, each of who has a particularly strategy for Person A's demise. Traveling in the desert accompanied by two very malicious companions, Person A was both unwise and irresponsible in not carefully managing his most resource: his canteen. Due to Person A's lack of diligence and vigilance, he was left vulnerable to sabotage by both Person B's poison and Person C's dumping. Both Persons B and C have the intent and the capability to murder Person A. From a moral standpoint, both Person B and C are guilty as both attempted to murder Person A. However, Person C is the murderer who orchestrated Person A's coup de grace and is the true killer. While Person B made an attempt on A's life through poison, he was unknowingly thwarted by Person C, and ultimately did not cause any harm whatsoever to Person A. Although he did make an attempt on Person As life, he was not the killer. When Person B pleads in court, "A did not die of poisoning. It was not I who killed him, he tells the truth. Person B is only guilty of attempted murder and is not the killer. On the other hand, Person C had the intent and means to kill Person A and succeeded in the homicide. In the scenario, Person A died of dehydration in the desert, due to the fact that his canteen was depleted by water. The act of dumping out the canteen resulted in Person A's death by dehydration. The fact that Person A died to dehydration, rather than succumbing to poison is proof that Person Cs unsavory actions led to Person As death. Person C tries to justify his actions by stating that What I did lengthened, not shortened, A's life. Do not blame me." He tries to draw attention away from his guilt by trying to paint himself in a positive light, by portraying himself as some sort of good Samaritan who lengthened Person As life by discarding the poison and giving him a little bit more time to live. In reality, his actions could have amplified Person As suffering. Rather than a (possibly) quick and painless death to poison, Person A was forced to endure the effects of dehydration including heart palpitations, nausea, vomiting, weakness, unquenchable thirst, delirium, and ultimately death. As the end of this ordeal, Person A is dead, Person B is guilty of attempted murder, and Person C is given the harshest punishment as the killer responsible for Person As death. Because the conviction is limited to one person according to the prompt, Person C should receive punishment to the fullest extent of the law for the murder. As the proverb states You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.
