Murder/Manslaughter

Taking another person’s life, without lawful excuse, is considered criminal homicide. There are two classifications of criminal homicide: murder and manslaughter. A person that is charged with either murder or manslaughter faces many risks that could adversely affect their future. The penalties for these offenses include life prison terms and the death penalty. The factors surrounding the offense may determine the type of punishment sought by the state. An accusation of taking the life of another person is the most serious accusation that can be made. It is imperative that you seek an experienced criminal defense attorney to handle your case. Your life may depend on the outcome.

Murder has different legal definitions. It is murder to take the life of another with premeditation. You may also be charged with murder if a person is killed, intentionally or unintentionally, during the commission of a felony. Further, murder charges can be made if you act with disregard for the safety of others and your action is imminently or inherently dangerous to others. Manslaughter is a lesser charge than murder and is generally defined as unlawfully taking another person’s life due to negligence or in a situation that does not constitute murder.

Manslaughter may involve the accident death of another.Alternatively,the act of killing may have been committed in the heat of passion. Manslaughter may be punishable by up to 15 years in prison or in some circumstances a life sentence.
