There are four types of criminal homicides that the state of Texas recognizes
as punishable by death penalty. They include:
- Capital murder
- Criminally negligent homicide
Capital murder may be charged when the person knowingly and intentionally
kills a police officer, firefighter, first responder or keeper of the
peace. Manslaughter is the act of an individual who knowingly and recklessly
engages in an activity that causes the death of another person or if they
acted in a fit of rage or anger and killed another individual. Murder
is charged if a person acts on a premeditated thought to criminally end
another person's life. Criminal negligence is knowingly and willingly
causing harm to another person in a manner that could kill them. All of
these charges carry high-stakes consequences, and if you are arrested,
you need to immediately work with Stornello Law Firm, P.C.
