Murder is essentially the most serious felony crime you can be accused of in the state of California.

In many cases, it is a "capital offense" which can incur the death penalty.

Our West Covina murder defense attorneys and team enlists the help of defense experts, forensic investigators, and jury consultants to put forth the best possible murder defense.

What Constitutes a Murder Charge?

According to California violent crime laws, you can be charged with murder for the “the unlawful killing of a human being or a fetus with malice of forethought." You can be accused of committing a homicide if you allegedly killed another person (unlawfully or otherwise). Unlike manslaughter and other forms of homicide, in order to achieve a murder conviction, the prosecution must be able to prove that there was malice aforethought or an intent to kill.

Implied malice is found where a killing:

  • Resulted from an intentional act;
  • Where the natural consequences of the act were perilous to human life; and
  • You deliberately performed the act with knowledge of that danger to and with a conscious disregard for human life.
