Murder is defined as the killing of a human being by a sane person, with intent, malice aforethought and with no legal excuse or authority. There are several degrees of murder. First degree murder is the unlawful killing of someone that is both premeditated and willful, occurring after planning or lying in wait. Second degree murder is unplanned, intentional killing that was committed in the heat of passion. Then there is voluntary manslaughter which is described as intentional killing without a premeditation to kill. Finally involuntary manslaughter refers to an unintentional killing resulting from criminal negligence or recklessness.
A murder conviction is very complicated and expensive, both financially and for the rest of your life. People convicted of murder, can face life in prison to death penalty depending on the state. In general murder is the highest crime a person can commit and because the courts look down on murder charges, the laws get stricter and harsher.
