It’s no secret that Homicide (commonly referred to as murder) charges are very serious and can carry a life sentence. In New York, there are several different types of charges that can be brought when one person causes the death of another:
- Murder in the first degree
- Murder in the second degree
- Manslaughter in the first degree
- Manslaughter in the second degree
- Vehicular homicide
- Criminally negligent homicide
