Murder Laws

Murder laws are many times unknown to the average person. When individuals are faced with circumstances that involve the act or charge of murder they begin to seek the facts to fulfill their curiosity. Some questions can arise when dealing with murder laws such as what is the murder punishment? What is first degree murder? Also, what is second degree murder?

What is murder?

Murder is defined as the unlawful killing, with spite, of another human. The state of mind of malice aforethought is a distinguishing factor of murder to other forms of unlawful homicide such as manslaughter. Penalties for murder can range from a long prison sentence to the harshest of penalties a death penalty. In many countries the statute of limitations for murder is non-existent. Individuals that commit the act of murder are called murderers. Uncertainties of what murder is or what the statute of limitation for murder might be often lead to questions like the ones answered below by Experts.

What is the statute of limitations for attempted murder Indiana?

In Indiana, prosecutions of Class A felonies are not subject to any Statue of Limitations and attempted murder is considered a Class A felony. In order for an individual to be convicted of attempted murder, the State carries the burden of proof and must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the individual acted with the specific intent to kill.

In Massachusetts, can you convict someone for attempted murder 10 years after evidence was discovered?

Following Massachusetts law, unsuccessful attempts of murder with a dangerous weapon is considered a felony. The statute of limitations for this type of crime is 10 years. If 10 years has passed since the last action that constituted any planning or physical action of the attempt took place then that individual would no longer be able to be charged with the crime. If the attempt to murder did not involve the usage of a dangerous weapon then the statute of limitations would be 6 years.

How does felony murder differ from other forms of murder?

There are different levels of homicide; manslaughter, murder and felony murder. The distinction of charges is based on the degree of culpability and intent on the part of the person that does the killing. In many cases intent to kill is not needed for felony murder. A felony is committed that had something to do with the murder or killing results in a charge of felony murder.

During a murder trial in New Mexico is it legal for the jury to be allowed to go home during deliberation?

A jury is allowed to go home during deliberation in a murder trial in New Mexico. Many times juries will only be sequestered, not able to go home, in very extreme circumstances. Courts do not typically sequester juries. In most instances juries will be able to leave during the deliberation process and return the when scheduled to be back at court.

Obtaining good facts and having an understanding of murder laws can helps when faced with questions regarding murder laws. Experts can help answer what the definition of murder is or what the statute of limitations is for murder. Get the answers fast and affordably by asking an Expert.

Recent Murder Questions

  • I need clarification on who to list in the federal suit where

    I need clarification on who to list in the federal suit where it's basically my separated spouse working in conspiracy with my former employers Department of Defense.. Most of the evidence is what she has done by their direction.. So she is easier to prove, but she is also the best witness to what has been done overall - so I would want her as a witness not a defendant. So given that she operated with them but I am really only trying to sue them would I just take it for granted that her witnessing would point towards them and that the evidence that comes from her she will testify they did?? Or do I have to list her as defendant to ensure victory - I'd really prefer not (that would be 2 suits against her)...
  • Intentional Legal Malpractice in the commission of a crime

    Intentional Legal Malpractice in the commission of a crime was committed
    by my last family lawyer in an effort to cover for my ex's pedophilia in a Catholic School and in order to place my children with her to cover for her and her accomplices crimes.. This was done by way of bribe and/or by way of defamation. Regardless, what are all the legal action I can bring against Steve for this and in what order? (he belongs in prison of course - which is the goal)? So detailed steps or at least a list of actions in order would be appreciated...
  • my minor child (17) was cyber bullied by a girl and punchedI

    my minor child (17) was cyber bullied by a girl and punched
    I was reading this question - and so that I understand legally - why wouldn't they just investigate and find that this girl was being harmed and was standing up for herself? Why would they punish the victim of a crime like cyberbullying and sentence her instead of the actual criminal.. I'm a little lost on where any of us have to take crime and deal with it. It's my understanding that we are empowered by the right to self defense to stop any crime against us.. Is that not right? And say no one was listening to this girl's cries for help from this bully, like they may not listen to my nephew (and instead use an alibi like he is on medication and so shouldn't be believed), and because of that she was close to jumping off a bridge - should she have let the cyberbully kill her in that scenario - and if that were true wouldn't she have been defending herself from attempted murder???
