Homicide, also known as the deliberate and unlawful killing of another person, can be charged as either murder or manslaughter. In the state of California, there are two main degrees of murder: first degree murder, which is the willful, deliberate and premeditated killing of another with aggravating circumstances, and second-degree murder, defined as any intentional killing that is not premeditated.

How a Homicide Attorney Can Help
There are numerous defenses a criminal defense attorney can use to prove your innocence in court of law. For example, homicide and murder charges may be justified if they were committed out of self-defense. Additionally, some homicides may be ‘excusable’. Excusable homicides include cases where the suspect is legally insane, or where the suspect is the victim of continuous and repeated domestic battery and eventually kills their spouse.
