This is my understanding as well. Therefore, a person who murders his slave
not subject to a legal proceeding. If the slave has a family member to
avenge his death,
then the family member can try to do so, I suppose. But how likely is it?
A slave then does not have the status a free person, which is no different

I don't think a punishment,
I think Milgrom would say that 'mot yumat' applies to judicial execution
by a court following a trial, whereas "naqom yenaqem" applies to blood

Milgrom maintains that "karet" means that G-d will cut off the guilty
party's bloodline, and possibly also that he will be denied an afterlife.
