Four Types of Homicide in Arizona:

There are four different types of homicides in Arizona. The most serious type of homicide is first degree murder. First degree murder is typically charged when one person kills another person with premeditation. First degree murder can also be charged under the felony murder rule where someone dies during the course of committing a felony. If the state does not feel it can prove premeditation or the death did not occur during the commission of a felony, second-degree murder charges are typically filed.  The sentence imposed for first and second degree murder can be more than 25 years of prison.  Such a sentence, which could equate to life for many, commands the best legal representation one can afford.

 
Other homicide charges commonly seen in Arizona are manslaughter and negligent homicide.  The most common is manslaughter which can be charged for heat of passion murder, intentionally providing the means for someone to commit suicide, recklessly causing the death of another, and committing a murder while being threatened to do so with unlawful deadly physical force.  Although the punishment is not as severe as first degree murder, a diligent and aggressive attorney can make a big difference in the outcome of a case.
 

No matter what type of homicide is being charged, they are almost always high-profile cases and will be featured regularly in the news.  You want an attorney who will not only defend you in court but will also defend you in the media as the case progresses.  Natasha is that attorney.
