First Degree Murder

First degree murder is the intentional and premeditated killing of another person, including an unborn child. In Arizona, it is possible to be charged with first degree murder if you cause the death of any person during the commission other felonies (such as sex crimes, drug offenses, kidnapping, robbery, or burglary), or if a person intentionally kills a police officer in the line of duty.

Second Degree Murder

Second Degree murder is when a person intentionally causes the death of another person.

If you are convicted of second degree murder in Scottsdale, Arizona law requires a minimum of 10 years in prison. While a less severe charge than first degree murder, it is critical you seek a knowledgeable murder defense attorney if you have been charged with second degree murder.
