Ogden Homicide Defense
Probably the most commonly cited criminal charge in all of pop culture is murder. Murder charges are portrayed in popular books, music, TV, and movies; and although it may seem like a very straight forward charge it is most often more complicated then portrayed. The basic idea for the crime of murder is intentionally causing the death of another, but there are a number of ways a person can be charged with murder, including:
- Causing death while committing a felony;
- Resisting arrest and causing the death of a peace officer;
- Acting with depraved indifference to human life and committing acts that create a grave risk of and actually cause death;
- Intending to cause serious bodily harm to another but instead causing death.
