Homicide occurs when someone has recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally caused the death of another. The legal term “homicide” references a range of situations, and the specific charges that will be brought will depend on the circumstances surrounding the case. However, all of these charges are related to situations in which someone lost their life.
Homicide charges in Texas can include:
Capital murder is the most serious homicide charge, and a conviction will result in either life in prison or the death penalty. Manslaughter is typically related to reckless behavior that resulted in someone’s death. Similarly, intoxication manslaughter charges reference when someone operates a vehicle while intoxicated and kills someone. Criminally negligent homicide occurs when someone causes the death of another individual as a result of behaviors that they should have known were dangerous.
