Homicide Attorneys

Homi­cide is the killing of a per­son by another.  In Col­orado, there are var­i­ous degrees of homicide:

  • First Degree Mur­der – C.R.S. § 18–3-102
  •  Sec­ond Degree Mur­der – C.R.S. § 18–3-103
  •  Manslaugh­ter – C.R.S. § 18–3-104
  •  Crim­i­nally Neg­li­gent Homi­cide – C.R.S. § 18–3-105
  •  Vehic­u­lar Homi­cide – C.R.S. § 18–3-106
  •  First Degree Mur­der of a Peace Offi­cer or Fire­fighter – C.R.S. § 18–3-107

The main dif­fer­ences between the degrees are the state of mind of the accused, the man­ner in which the crime was com­mit­ted, and the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the act.
