Does killing a gentile unintentionally absolve you from the crime? (Makkot 7b)
"(דברים יט, ד) בבלי דעת פרט למתכוין מתכוין פשיטא בר קטלא הוא אמר רבה פרט למתכוין להרוג את הבהמה והרג את האדם לכותי והרג את ישראל לנפל והרג בן קיימא
The baraita states: “Unawares”; to exclude from exile the one who kills with intent. The Gemara asks: "With intent? It is obvious that he is not exiled; he is subject to the death penalty." Rabba said: "The reference is to exclude the one who acted with the intent to kill an animal and he killed a person inadvertently, or one who acted with the intent to kill a gentile and he killed a Jew, or one who acted with the intent to kill a non-viable newborn and he killed a viable newborn."
Does that mean that such person will be absolved from the exile, and therefore face the death penalty? Or is that person altogether absolved from the crime?
Sorry for my layman Talmudic understanding.
