Murder and Violent Crimes

Accusations of murder or a violent crime are as serious as they are frightening. Under Ohio law, murder and violent crimes are divided into many different categories. Murder occurs when someone causes the death of another, including the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy. Aggrivated murder refers to when one purposely, with prior planning, causes the death of another, or terminates another’s pregnancy unlawfully. Voluntary manslaughter, a first degree felony, takes place when someone under the influence of a sudden strong emotion or a fit of rage knowingly causes the death of another, even if provoked by the victim. Involuntary manslaughter transpires when one causes the death of another as a result of the offender’s committing or attempting to commit a felony. Under these circumstances, the involuntary manslaughter is a first degree felony. If one causes the death of another while committing or attempting to commit a misdemeanor, regulatory offence, or a minor misdemeanor, the involuntary manslaughter is a felony of the third degree. Reckless homicide, a third degree felony, occurs when someone causes the death of another due to recklessness. Negligent homicide, a first degree misdemeanor, takes place when someone negligently causes the death of another through the use of deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance. Aggravated vehicular homicide occurs when a person operating a motor vehicle causes the death of another, recklessly or as a proximate result of committing a reckless operation offence within a construction zone.
