What Is Murder in California?

Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought. In California, murder is split into two categories, violent murder and non-violent murder.

In either case, murder is punishable by:

  • Life in prison without the possibility of parole (LWOP)
  • The death penalty

The punishment for murder varies depending on the circumstances of the case. For example, murder committed in the course of a robbery or burglary is punishable by life without parole. If the murder was committed in the course of another felony, the punishment is 25 years to life in prison. If the murder was committed in the course of a special circumstance, the punishment may be life without parole or the death penalty.

Types of Murder in California

Murder is a very serious crime in the state of California. If you are convicted of murder, you will face severe penalties, including the death penalty or life in prison without parole. In order to be convicted of murder, the prosecutor must prove that you are guilty of one of the categories of murder in California.

These categories are:

  • First-degree murder
  • Second-degree murder
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter

First-degree murder is the most serious category. It includes murder that was committed with special circumstances, such as murder during a robbery, murder of a police officer, murder of a witness to a crime, or murder of a child under the age of 14. If you are convicted of first-degree murder, you will face the harshest penalties. A conviction of first-degree murder can include life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
