Types of Homicide in Detroit – Defense Lawyer for Murder Charges
There are a number of different types of homicide a person can be accused of committing in Detroit. First degree murder cases involve intent and premeditation by poison, lying in wait, or another willful and deliberate means. Also resulting in first degree murder is any murder of a police or corrections officer, or murders perpetrated during a major felony offense such as carjacking or criminal sexual conduct. Second degree murder results from cases involving any other type of murder, usually defined as a premeditated killing.
Also sometimes included in the definition of homicide is manslaughter. Manslaughter cases are not premeditated, but can still be intentional in the heat of the moment. Both unintentional and intentional manslaughter cases are very serious, and it is crucial that anyone faced with allegations of killing someone else contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
