Homicide Law

Homicide law is an umbrella term used to describe a number of offenses that can be charged when the defendant has wrongfully caused the death of another human being. The specific homicide offense charged in a given case will depend upon the defendantís mental state and subjective intentions at the time the crime was committed. Some homicides occur unintentionally, as the result of extremely reckless behavior. Others are committed following a period of deliberation and forethought by the defendant.
