1. On death of the Respondent aka Accused, the criminal charge against the Respondent aka Accused will stand abated, "by legal default", without any further reference, more so because in a criminal case, the criminal charge is not transferable.
2. HOWEVER, "IF" there are multiple "Respondent aka Accused" in the criminal case, THEN the case will continue against the remaining Respondent aka Accused.
