Homicide law in North Carolina

Homicide is the unlawful killing of a human being. First degree murder is a category of homicide, a felony punishable by life in state prison or by the death penalty. In North Carolina, the law divides homicide into different categories, which require proof of different elements and lead to different punishments.

  • First-degree murder
  • Second-degree murder
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter

There are many defenses against a homicide charge, and the burden rests entirely on the prosecutor to prove that you committed a homicide. You don’t need to prove anything. Whether you had to kill someone in self-defense or you were somewhere else and the prosecution’s witness mistook you for the killer, you need an attorney who knows the law and who understands your side of the story. Every case is unique, and to protect your rights and defend yourself, you want the services of Ames Chamberlin, a relentless and dedicated homicide defense attorney.
