Experienced Attorneys Working For You
Murder is perhaps one of the most serious crimes an individual can be arrested for. While most states distinguish between first-degree murder and second-degree murder, Texas differentiates the two as capital murder and second-degree murder, which is referred to as just "murder." The penalties associated with these crimes are severe in nature – capital murder, for example, can carry a possible capital punishment sentence.

What are common murder defense strategies?
In order for the prosecution to convict a defendant of committing capital murder, they must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally caused the death of another individual, intended to cause serious injury, or caused the death of another person while committing or trying to commit another felony. Second-degree murder, however, involves the death of another person that resulted in the accused’s unlawful acts or recklessness.
Common murder defense strategies may include:
- Lack of intent
- Lack of knowledge
- Heat of passion
