Types Of Homicide

Homicide is an all-encompassing term that refers to any situation in which one person kills another. Though manslaughter and murder are two types of homicide, murder refers to a premeditated, or planned, killing. Manslaughter, on the other hand, is not intentional or planned beforehand.

All homicide charges have the potential for harsh penalties, though murder is the most severe. We encourage you to contact a lawyer immediately if charged with murder or any other homicide charge. A murder conviction could result in a life sentence.

Defense Strategies For Homicide Cases

Despite the severe nature of these types of crimes, attorney Alfred Fargione can employ many defense strategies to fight your charges. Examples of these defenses include:

  • Killing in self-defense
  • Accusing the wrong person
  • Inaccurate evidence

In addition, if you are accused of murder, we can fight to reduce the severity of your charges by proving that the death was not intentional or premeditated.
