Types of Murder Charges

There are several types of charges in these cases. Murder is a criminal act in which a person intentionally kills another person with no justification or valid excuse such as self-defense. There is more than one degree of murder. First-degree murder is the act of murder in which the homicide has been planned or premeditated. It is a very serious offense and considered more heinous as the defendant actually planned to take another person's life without excuse. Second-degree murder is a lesser charge in which a person has taken another person's life during an attack that had not been planned, without intent to kill, or due to committing reckless acts that resulted in the death of another individual. Your life is at risk if you are convicted of first-degree murder. The death penalty is a possibility in the state of California.
