What Is Murder?
Murder is the killing of another person with malice aforethought. This is a very serious charge, and if convicted, you could face life in prison or even the death penalty. The murder statute in Arizona is complex and includes many different types of murder charges. You could be charged with first-degree or second-degree murder, and each charge has its own set of circumstances.
For example, second-degree murder occurs when a death occurs without premeditation or an intent to kill, but it is still caused by the defendant's actions. First-degree murder is more serious and includes premeditated murder, felony murder, and murder committed by someone who has been convicted of a prior murder.
Types of Murder Charges in Arizona
Our Prescott murder defense attorney has handled many types of murder charges and can help you if you have been arrested or charged with:
- First-degree murder
- Second-degree murder
- Capital murder
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Involuntary manslaughter
What Are the Penalties for Murder?
In Arizona, murder is a class 2 felony, which means that the sentencing could be 20 years to life in prison. If you have been convicted of murder, you could also be charged with a death sentence. If you have been convicted of first-degree murder, you could be sentenced to death. The death sentence has been abolished in Arizona, so the only way you could be sentenced to death is if you have been convicted of capital murder.
