Cedric's Death

The Killing Curse, which causes instant death in its target, is an example of a dark charm.

"Dark charms are known as jinxes, hexes and curses. This book does not deal with such spells."
The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1[src]

Dark charms are spells that add certain properties to an object or creature, but have connotations of dark magic. The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1 does not carry instructions for such spells.[1]

Jinxes are usually spells whose effects are irritating but amusing. Hexes are considered slightly worse than jinxes, but are still only dark magic of a minor sort. Curses are usually the worst kinds of dark magic.[2]
