Well for one most murders don't happen without the victim never being aware of it like in your example. For two, you're cutting someone else's life short and depriving them of many future experiences. Of course, the corpse itself doesn't care. It's dead after all. For three, because murder affects all the living people who have come into contact with the deceased.
