Trust in Our Criminal Defense Attorneys
Involuntary manslaughter is reckless conduct which results in the death of another without premeditation or malice, such as an accidental death caused by reckless driving or violation of driving laws. Murder is intentionally causing the death of another. Capital murder is a premeditated taking of the life of another and includes:
- Killing more than one person
- Killing a police officer
- Killing a child
- Causing a death in the act of committing a violent felony
In Texas, these are all considered criminal homicide offenses and result in felony charges of varying degrees and carry penalties of imprisonment from two years to life, or in some cases the death penalty. These are some of the most serious of violent crimes with the most severe penalties in the state. Anyone accused of murder or manslaughter should consult with our Denton County criminal defense lawyers for a full explanation of the charges.
