Ok I can see that. But what if Chloe had simply hit the guy over the head with a bat? The guy lives but is brain dead. The result is the same but different weapon.

Sorry to bring personal experience into this BUT my brother suffered a massive head injury when I was a kid. He fell during a work accident. He was Brain Dead. My parents decided not to keep his body alive by machine.

He was gone.

If a similar injury happened as a result of purposeful attack -
that would be murder.

Yeah, I know its just a tv show. Not trying to be overtly seriously here. This was almost 20 years and I barely remember him I was so young. Just giving my POV. Which is that my definition of "Brain Dead" has been ingrained in my mind for my whole life.

while I think this guy was murdered I think it was really Brainiac in control and not Chloe. Just my current take....

We will see.
