Punishable by Death Penalty
California Penal Code 187 (a) defines murder as the unlawful killing of a human being or a fetus with malice aforethought. When you have the intention of ending another person's life out of anger or hatred, you may be tried with homicide or attempted murder. There are several different degrees of murder which you can be charged with; all of which require the representation of an immensely qualified legal professional from Madrid Law Firm.
First Degree Murder
First degree murder is the act of killing another person using a device or explosive such as a gun or grenade. Premeditated, willful murder can be charged as first degree murder.
This offense is similar to first degree murder, in that the crime was premeditated; however, ,capital murder is the unlawful killing of a person for financial gain, the murder of a law enforcement, judge or juror or elected official or if you kill more than one person. There are more than twenty special circumstances which can fall under capital murder.
Second Degree Murder
Non-deliberate or premeditated murder, such as shooting a gun into a crowd or a DUI accident, can be considered a second degree murder. This felony is strictly defined under California Penal Code 187.
