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.
