Mississippi Criminal Defense Attorney and Lawyer for Murder
Murder is the intentional killing of a human being by another human being without justification. Manslaughter, on the other hand is the killing of one human being by another human being by accident or without the intent to murder or, in some instances, in the heat of passion.
If a person is convicted of murder penalties range from death or time in the penitentiary which can extend to life. Fines and assessments can also be imposed.
As soon as a death occurs under circumstances that could give rise to a murder or manslaughter, it is critical that a trained and competent attorney be retained in order to go to the scene and take photographs, interview witnesses, gather evidence, conduct tests, and conduct other important actions, all of which could play a vital role in exonerating the accused. Early defense work cannot be underestimated. Anything you say can be used against you in court.
