How is murder defined under Texas law?

Murder is a form of criminal homicide. Criminal homicide is the offense of taking another person's life without a lawful excuse. Murder is the most serious form of criminal homicide, as it involves deliberate action on the part of the offender. There are different classifications of murder, and the penalties for these may vary depending on the specific case.

Capital Murder - Intentionally and knowingly causing the death of another, when:

  • The victim is a peace officer, fireman, judge or justice of the court
  • The defendant intentionally committed murder during the commission of a felony offense of kidnapping, burglary, robbery, aggravated sexual assault, arson, obstruction, retaliation, or terrorist threats
  • The defendant was paid or paid another to commit murder
  • The defendant committed murder while escaping or attempting to escape from jail or prison
  • The defendant intentionally caused the death of more than one person, either during the same incident or in separate incidents that were a part of the same scheme
  • The defendant murdered a child under the age of 6 years old

Murder - Intentionally and knowingly causing the death of another person, or causing another's death due to the attempt or intention of causing serious bodily injury or of committing a felony offense. Murder is a first degree felony but may be charged as a lesser felony of the second degree if it can be proven by a preponderance of evidence that the defendant committed the act in the heat of passion.
