Fearless at Trial. Invincible in the Courtroom. Fighting Criminal Charges to Win

Raleigh Murder Defense Attorney

Murder is classified under the law as intentionally taking a human life. In North Carolina, murder can be charged in the first or second degree, depending on the specifics of the case.

First-Degree Murder

First-degree murder is characterized by killing using any of the following measures:

  • A weapon of mass destruction
  • Poisoning
  • Lying in wait
  • Imprisonment
  • Starving or torturing

You can also be charged with first-degree murder if you kill someone in the process of committing another felony, such as a robbery, arson, kidnapping or rape.

First-degree murder is a Class A felony, which means that it is punishable by either death or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Second-Degree Murder

Second-degree murder occurs without premeditation. Malice and recklessness are hallmarks of this offense. It is a Class B2 felony in North Carolina, punishable by:

  • 94 to 393 months in prison
