"That death and nature do contend about them, Whether they live, or die." (Act 2: 2) Lady Macbeth has drugged the guards and cannot tell if they are dead of alive, nor does she care.The owl that shrieked marked the death of Duncan, the sound like bells before an execution.

Lady Macbeth did not commit the murder, but she convinced Macbeth to do it therefore she shares just as much of the blame as Macbeth.
