Criminal Homicide in Texas

There are few crimes as severe as taking another’s life. In Texas, murder falls under the category of criminal homicide. A person can be charged with criminal homicide when the killing of another person involves willful intent or negligence.

There are various degrees of murder, including:

  • First-degree murder – when one person deliberately murders another based on a predetermined decision
  • Capital murder – an elevated form of first-degree murder, where the minimum punishment is life imprisonment and could result in the death penalty
  • Second-degree murder – when a person acts on his impulses to kill another as opposed to acting on a plan
  • Felony murder – involves killing another person while committing a serious felony

Charged as a first-degree felony, murder typically carries a sentence between 5 and 99 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. If the charge can be reduced to a second-degree felony, like if a person shows that they committed the crime in the “heat of passion,” the jail sentence is significantly decreased to being between two and 20 years.
