Murder is the one of the most serious types of offenses that a person can be charged with. The best thing that someone charged of murder can do, is to remain silent at ALL times and wait for their Attorney to be present before answering any questions. This rule applies to private individuals, as well as law enforcement agents.
In California murder has been codified under Penal Code section 187. There are several other charges that are also applicable in this area. Attempted murder, manslaughter, murder in the second degree are all possible charges when something goes terribly wrong.
We must remember that the majority of Murders are premeditated, however there are many that are simply accidents cause by an unusual set of facts. Either way, if you ever find yourself in a position where you must defend yourself against such allegations, the best thing you can ever do is to have an experience Attorney by your side.
