Henderson Legal Group reminds you that in some cases, homicide is justifiable or excusable:
- Justifiable Homicide occurs when you are acting in self-defense. You are legally entitled to use deadly force when you are resisting an attempted murder or someone is trying to commit a felony upon you. Homicide is also justifiable with deadly force when it occurs in a dwelling that you inhabit at the time.
- Excusable Homicide occurs when a killing happens by accident when you were using ordinary caution, in the heat of passion with sufficient provocation, and the homicide was the result of sudden combat.
While homicide cases are among the most serious, at Henderson Legal Group we understand that the facts of the case deserve thorough investigation and that you are entitled to vigorous defense.
