Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

Capital Murder means murder for which Death penalty may be imposed. Not all people convicted of murder receive the death penalty, but as long as the sentence defendant is facing can include death penalty, the charge is called capital murder and the murder has to be intentional and premeditated.
