Degrees & Types of Murder in Michigan

Homicide, commonly referred to as murder, is defined as the killing of one person by another. It is an extremely serious crime, and the state of Michigan responds strongly to those convicted of this crime.

Some instances of homicide are legal, such as in self-defense, but unlawful homicide can be classified as:

  • First Degree Murder - The killing of another person with intention
  • Second Degree Murder - The killing of another person without intention
  • Voluntary Manslaughter - The intentional killing of another person without malice
  • Involuntary Manslaughter - The unintentional killing of another person without malice
  • Negligent Homicide - The killing of another person through negligence, like during a DUI

If you have been charged or accused of such, waste no time in enlisting the services of our Michigan criminal defense lawyer of Prain Law, PLLC.

This is why our skilled and success-driven Michigan criminal defense lawyer refuses to sit back while you suffer these unjust consequences.

Consequences of homicide include, but are not limited to, the following:

Prain Law, PLLC is focused only on the types charges featured on our website. This helps us deliver the decisive, effective advocacy for which our clients know us. We only serve individuals currently under investigation or who have a current case pending in court. Our firm does not represent injury victims, defendants who have already taken a plea or have been sentenced, or those seeking to expunge a criminal record. We do not respond to anyone who is not involved in a pending investigation or who has a court case for a type of charge we do not handle, but we wish you the very best of luck.
