Types of Murder Charges

If you have been charged with murder, it is important to understand which type of murder you are being charged with:

  • First Degree Murder - The killing of a human being by a sane person with intent, malice aforethought, and with no legal excuse or authority. In most states, the moving of a person before murder, the killing of a police officer, or as an incident to another crime would be considered first degree murders.
  • Second Degree Murder - Second degree murder is a killing without premeditation such as "heat of the moment" scenarios including sudden quarrels or fights. It is important to note that a person may be charged with first or second degree murder if they were involved in the crime but did not actually commit murder.
  • Manslaughter - There are three types of manslaughter in California: voluntary, involuntary, and vehicular. Distinctions between the three depend on the circumstances during the occurrence as well as the defendant's state of mind.
