Homicide Defined

Homicide is the general category of crimes which include all charges of causing the death of another. These charges include intentional death, which is referred to as murder, and unintentional death, which is referred to as manslaughter, or criminally negligent homicide. It is of the utmost importance to have an experienced homicide defense attorney representing you in these cases. All homicide charges are very serious charges, and each carries serious penalties, including the death penalty, or life in prison without parole.

Additional Information

If you or a person you know is arrested on suspicion of homicide, when you speak to that person, it is most important that they know they should not speak to anyone, and they should not sign or initial anything. Contacting an attorney immediately is critical.

The first determination the Police make is whether death was intentional or intentional. Murder is the most serious homicide; it is when a person intends to take the life of another person. Murder penalties can be life imprisonment or the death penalty.

Manslaughter may be charged even where someone is killed unintentionally. If the killing was intentional but not pre-planned – as in crimes of passion or domestic violence – a person may be charged with first degree manslaughter.
If a vehicle is involved (as in many DWI cases) vehicular manslaughter may be charged.
