Homicide in Nevada

Obtain Legal Representation from Our Reno Criminal Defense Attorney

Homicide or murder is considered the most serious criminal charge an individual can face in court. In Nevada, the sentence for a murder conviction includes life imprisonment without parole.

If you are facing a murder conviction, it is imperative to seek legal services from an experienced and reliable attorney. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Stover, our Reno criminal defense lawyer can give you with the aggressive and relentless reputation you need to overcome this arduous obstacle.

Types of Murder Charges

The most severe form of homicide is first-degree murder. It is defined as the “premeditated and intentional killing of another,” including murders committed during a violent felony such as burglary or sexual battery. Punishment for first-degree murder includes either life imprisonment without the possibility of parole or life imprisonment with possible parole.

Second-degree murder is considered an intentional killing which is not planned or premeditated, nor committed in a “heat of passion,” and a killing caused by dangerous conduct and the offender’s discernable lack of concern for human life. This crime is punishable by life in prison with a possibility of parole after ten years, or 25 years in prison with the possibility of parole after ten years.

Attempted murder is prosecuted as a category B felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence of two and 20 years.
