I believe this is the reason why the question for the translation to "kill" as inacurate comes up. The terminology they use is "an unfortunate translation or rendering".

They can use this verse from the NT to correct the Ten Commandment.
Mat 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Matt 5:21Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

But the Greek word is the same.
