Understanding Murder

Murder is defined by the law as the unlawful killing of another person. Whether this killing was premeditated, with malicious intent, during the course of committing a felony or accidental will change the possible penalties. The possible penalties are usually severe, and the death penalty may even be sought if you are charged with first-degree murder. Our firm has decades of experience defending those charged with capital murder. If you are charged with murder you should hire an attorney that understands your charges and understands how to fight them. Our experienced murder defense legal team at Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux P.A., understands how stressful it is to be facing a serious charge such as murder. This makes it that much more important to have an expert legal defense on your side.

Types Of Murder Charges In Florida

In the state of Florida, the illegal killing of a person is split into two crimes: murder and manslaughter. Murder is charged in the first, second and third degree. Manslaughter can be charged by act or procurement, which is voluntary. Malice and/or premeditation separate murder from manslaughter. The penalties for murder will depend on whether or not the death was an intentional act, a dangerous act, or a reckless act.

In Florida, if you are engaged in the commission of a dangerous felony and someone is killed, you can be charged with murder. This applies even if you did not kill the person yourself, and even if you were merely a lookout. This is called felony first-degree murder and is punishable by life in prison or even the death penalty.

A legal homicide is one done in self-defense or in defense of another person. This can be done to prevent another serious crime, including rape, manslaughter, or robbery. Excusable homicide is one defense strategy that our defense lawyers can use for your case. If we can prove that the killing was justified or in self-defense, you may get your case dismissed.
