Morristown Criminal Defense Attorney
Murder is a very serious matter in the state of Tennessee. Murder, aside
from manslaughter, is essentially divided into two categories:
- First degree murder
- Second degree murder
Each has its own elements that must be proven in order to charge or convict
an individual of this crime. First degree murder is the premeditated or
intentional killing of another or the killing of another during the commission
of a dangerous felony such as an act of terrorism, burglary, or many other crimes.
Second degree murder is the knowing killing of another or any death that
results from the distribution of schedule I or schedule II drugs that
result in the death of a person.
If you have been charged with second degree murder then you could face
penalties of prison sentences for 15 to 25 years. If you have been charged
with first degree murder then you could face life imprisonment without
the possibility of parole, life imprisonment with the possibility of parole
after 51 years, or in some very serious cases, you could face the death
penalty. If you have been charged with murder in Tennessee then it is
