Home - Murder


One of the most severe charges that you can face is the charges of murder. South Carolina laws do not classify murder by degree; it rather organized by culpability level. Killing a person without having any legal justification falls under homicide. There are different culpability levels of homicide and the punishments differ for the crimes.

Different levels of Culpability 

The different levels are:

  • Murder – killing another person unlawfully with malice.
  • Manslaughter – killing another person intentionally without malice.
  • Involuntary Manslaughter – killing another person unintentionally without malice.
