Not surprisingly, murder is the most serious charge under the criminal prosecution laws of both New Jersey and New York. When one person kills another person with the intent to do so, a murder has been committed. Murder is punishable by up to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The main component of a murder charge and conviction is the ability of the prosecution to prove intent. A conviction on the charge of murder can only be returned by a jury if there is no doubt that the defendant both killed the victim and meant to do so. Our team will work tirelessly to uncover evidence that refutes the intent being alleged by the prosecution.
