Degrees of Murder in Texas

In Texas, there are two degrees of murder, which is a felony crime.

  • First-degree murder can be punished with life in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
  • Second-degree murder can carry up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

The difference between the two degrees of murder is whether the alleged crime was premeditated – planned out in advance – or carried out without premeditation.

Difference Between Murder and Capital Murder

Capital murder may be charged if the victim was a police officer, if the victim was younger than 10, or if the crime was committed while committing another crime, like robbery or aggravated sexual assault. Capital murder is a felony crime that can be punished with life in prison or even the death penalty.
