2nd DEGREE MURDER

2nd degree murder is one of the most serious charges and requires nothing less than an experienced and accomplished Colorado criminal attorney to defend against it.

 

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with murder in the second degree if the person knowingly causes the death of another.

 

In most cases, 2nd degree murder is a class 2 felony.  However, murder in the second degree can be a class 3 felony where the act causing the death occurred upon a sudden heat of passion, provoked by the intended victim.

 

If you or somebody you know is being charged with 2nd degree murder, you need to speak with a Colorado criminal lawyer immediately.  Contact a trial tested, result oriented Denver criminal defense attorney at Newell & Decker today to discuss the case.
