I said one word and the next day, I was murdered along with someone else I just met recently. If I said the opposite of the word I said, I would have lived, but the other person would have died still. Why?

I think this will go fast

Murdered because someone wanted you dead? Or to accomplish something else? Murder method relevant? Your relation to the someone else relevant? Someone else: H? A? M? Your relation to the murderer relevant? Is there one murderer? Two? More? A group? Any crimes relevant except murder? Was the word a statement? An answer to a question? Were you murdered in the same place? At roughly the same time? If you had said the opposite worked, would you have been in the place you were murdered at the time you were murdered? Or would you avoid murder by being somewhere else? Food relevant? Drink? Poison?

Was it a firing squad? Were you guilty? were you trying to plead for mercy? Did it take place in a foreign country, other than USA?

Here's what I've got so far: You were the jury foreman announcing the verdict of a trial. The accused was convicted and executed (or convicted and killed in prison).

Hmm... then you were murdered, right? Because of the guilty verdict? By a friend/relative of the accused?

Was the accused convicted?
Was the accused killed at all?
Was the other person killed the accused? Another juror?

Were you announcing the verdict when you said "Guilty"? Was the verdict "Guilty"?

recap!

I am a jury foreman and I gave a verdict to a ringleader for a huge gang. The verdict I gave was guilty. The next day, i am dead, another man is dead, and the gang leader is alive in jail. Your quest is to find out who the other man is and why are we dead?

is the other victim the judge?
if so can we then assume:
(a)you were a jury foreperson
(b)you delivered a 'guilty' verdict to a gang ringleader
(c) the other dead person is the judge
(d)you were killed for announcing and contributing to the verdict
(e)if you had said 'not guilty' you would still be alive
(f)the judge (or other dead person) died from some natural cause or unrelated event that would have occurred regardless of the verdict?

sorry, i just realised we had ruled out the judge, hence please disregard the references to 'judge' in my previous post!
I will insert 'fellow juror' instead of 'judge' in my previous post please.

BLOOPER!
I realized that in an old post that I said the accused was the other person that was killed. I meant to say that the accused was the killer! Sorry for the confusion!

to rephrase the above (f) what i meant was, would the other person have still died regardless of wether you announced the verdict as 'guilty' or 'not guilty'?
for example, he/she had a heart attack or was involved in a motor accident or similar?

would the other person have still died regardless of whether you announced the verdict as 'guilty' or 'not guilty'? yes

ok, everybody is starting to get wrong info here about the other person. So I will give some hints.
1. The other person was murdered and not killed by accidents or natural causes.
2. The gang leader went to jail and is the killer.
3. The other person is not the judge, another juror, the gang leader, a gang member.

Was the other person a witness? YES!!!!!! we got the answer!
****************SPOILER********************

I was a jury foreman, making a verdict for a case against a gang leader, who is the lead man in a drug ring. We had a witness, who saw the drugs being transported by the gang leader. He gave a testimony and I gave my verdict as guilty. Somehow, when the gang leader was in jail, he got a phone and ordered a hit on me, for giving him jail time, and the witness, for telling about it.
