What is a capital murder charge?

A capital murder conviction can bring life in prison without the possibility of parole or the death penalty in Texas. You will need a robust defense to have your charges thrown out or reduced.

For a capital case, the prosecution will need to prove that you intentionally:

Murdered a peace officer or fireman in the line of duty
Committed murder while committing another felony such as kidnapping or burglary
Committed murder for hire
Murdered multiple people during the same crime
Murdered someone under the age of six

If you have been accused, refrain from speaking to anyone other than your lawyer about the case. Police will attempt to elicit a confession from you and you have a right to speak with an attorney and also have one present to advise you during questioning.
