Texas Homicide Cases

Various types of homicide are covered under Texas law. Each case is unique, with its own set of facts and circumstances that will affect your charges and punishments if you are convicted.

In general, homicide cases include:

  • Capital murder
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter, including intoxication manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, and shaken baby syndrome death
  • Criminally negligent homicide

Capital murder is the most serious of the above due to the fact that it can be punished by life in prison without parole or by death. Murder involves the intent to kill or to inflict serious bodily harm through an act that is clearly dangerous to human life that results in death. Murder is charged as a first-degree felony punishable by five years to life in prison.

Manslaughter occurs through reckless actions that cause the death of another. A conviction of this second-degree felony is punishable by two up to 20 years in prison. Criminally negligent homicide occurs when another is killed by behavior that disregards the obvious and known risks to human life and safety. This is charged as a state jail felony punishable by 180 days up to two years behind bars.
