Being investigated for murder in Rancho Cucamonga, CA? If you have been charged with the crime of murder then you could face some very serious penalties for conviction. Murder is the unlawful killing of an individual with malice aforethought. Malice aforethought is the element that separates murder from manslaughter and essentially means that death of the individual was intended rather than accidental.
There are essentially three different classifications of murder:
First degree murder is killing one individual with a destructive or explosive device, or if you are lying in wait, or torturing the victim. The penalties for this crime include 25 years to life imprisonment for conviction. Capital murder is killing an individual for financial gain, as in the case of an assassin. It can also include killing more than one victim, killing a witness to prevent them from testifying, killing a person because of their race or ethnicity and many other cases. Second degree murder convictions can include penalties of 15 years to life imprisonment in the state prison.
