Texas Murder Laws
In Texas, anyone found guilty of murder charges can face 5 to 99 years imprisonment or even capital punishment, depending on the facts of the case. Murder is a type of criminal homicide that occurs mainly when a person causes someone’s death either intentionally or while in the act of committing another felony (TPC §19.02). Although murder is normally a first-degree felony, a charge may be enhanced to capital murder in certain situations, such as if the victim was a law officer or if the crime occurred while attempting a kidnapping or robbery (TPC §19.03). Because of the severity of these charges, anyone accused of murder should seek legal assistance immediately upon arrest or accusation.
