Arrested for Murder and Other Homicide Charges
Homicide in New York City can be murder, first degree manslaughter, second degree manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and first degree abortion or self-abortion. Also, homicide is defined as causing the death of a person (someone who has been born and is alive) or an unborn child a woman has been pregnant with for more than 24 weeks.
Aggravated criminally negligent homicide and aggravated manslaughter can be charged when a person causes the death of a police officer or a peace officer. Aggravated murder is more complicated and can involve the death of a police or peace officer, the death of an employee at a correctional facility or when someone over the age of 18 causes an unusually cruel death of a child under the age of 14.
