Murder & Manslaughter We Will Fight Relentlessly Every Step of the Way

Norwalk Murder Defense Lawyer

Experienced Defense Against Charges of Murder & Manslaughter

The most serious charges that any person can face are that of manslaughter or murder. If you have been accused of ending another person’s life, whether accidentally or intentionally, then you cannot hesitate to find a capable Norwalk criminal defense lawyer to represent you. You need an attorney by your side to help protect you from saying something incriminating and to begin defending you right away.

Both manslaughter and murder are serious felonies. Manslaughter is committed when someone accidentally kills another person due to gross negligence or recklessness, during the commission of a felony, or “in the heat of passion.” Murder is committed intentionally or “with malice.” Premeditated murder is known as “murder in the first degree” and must involve certain factors, such as the use of dangerous weapons or the commission of a serious felony.

First-degree murder could result in a life sentence or even the death sentence in extreme cases, although the death penalty is becoming less and less common. Murder in the second degree is punishable by a prison sentence of 15 years to life.
