Homicide and Homicide Penalties in NM
Homicide is the act of one human being killing another human being. Homicide is a broad category and not always a crime. It becomes a crime when the act of killing is malicious or intentional, or is caused by reckless or negligent behavior.
Criminal homicide is divided into murder, which is more severe, and manslaughter, and each type is defined and charged according to the severity. A killing committed with forethought, also known as premeditation, is taken more seriously than a killing without forethought.
The penalties for a homicide conviction depend on the type and context of the killing, but whatever the type of homicide, you will face very harsh penalties. Penalties could include many years in prison, life in prison, or even the death penalty.
