Murder / Homicide

Minnesota Murder / Homicide Lawyer

Obviously, a charge of murder is the most serious criminal charge a person can face.

There are three levels of homicide in the State of Minnesota – Murder in the First, Second and Third Degree. Murder in the First Degree involves premeditation and the intent to take someone’s life.

Our Criminal Attorney Handles All Degrees of Crimes

Murder in the First Degree can also involve causing the death of someone while committing certain types of crimes, such as criminal sexual conduct in the first or second degrees or intending to cause the death of someone while committing burglary, arson, and certain other serious offenses.

Murder in the Second Degree is deemed less serious because even though the defendant intended to cause the death of someone they did so without premeditation. Certain offenses are labeled as “unintentional murder” in the second degree where someone causes a death when committing certain felonies.

Murder in the Third Degree is defined as an act involving an eminently dangerous act without regard for human life.

In contrast with the charge of Murder or Homicide, a less-serious range of charges involves Manslaughter. This can either involve a death of another where the person acts in the heat of passion as they are provoked by words or acts. Manslaughter can also involve culpable negligence, causing an unreasonable risk to others.

Tina Appleby, Eric Nelson and Marsh Halberg are all very experienced defense attorneys, having handled a number of Murder and Manslaughter cases.
