ᴺQ. !qualta- v. “to kill, murder” (Category: to Kill)

ᴺQ. !qualta-, v. “to kill, murder” [created by ABNW] (Category: to Kill)

A neologism for “to kill, murder” appearing in Ales Bican’s New Words (ABNW) from the early 2000’s, a causative variant of qual- “to die (painfully)”, hence literally “to make die”. The same document suggests a similar formation for firta- “to kill” for accidentally causing death, but that seems unlike to me, since fir- seems to be limited to peaceful deaths.
