Murder & Manslaughter are serious offenses under the Criminal Code of Canada. A conviction can attract a lengthy jail sentence and in some instance, life imprisonment. The common reference for these charges is the broad term, “homicide.”
Homicide has three categories:
- First Degree Murder: it is where one intentionally plans to take the life of another. It requires deliberation and planning. If committed along with other offenses, it will be added to one’s charges.
- Second Degree Murder: in this, the killing is intentional but not premeditated. It is also a charge when one through dangerous acts results in the death of another.
- Manslaughter: where a person commits a crime without the intention of ending one’s life, even though, there was the intention of harming.
