What Is Murder in California?

Under California law, murder is the unlawful killing of another person with malice aforethought. In California, murder is charged as either a felony or a capital crime. The severity of a murder charge depends on the circumstances of the crime and the criminal history of the defendant.

If convicted of murder, a defendant faces imprisonment for the rest of their life without the possibility of parole, unless there are mitigating circumstances. Mitigating circumstances are circumstances that reduce a defendant's moral blameworthiness for their actions. For example, a defendant may have been acting in self-defense or may have been suffering from a mental illness at the time of the murder.

A defendant may also be eligible for the death penalty if the murder was committed under certain aggravating circumstances. These circumstances include multiple murders, murder of a police officer or firefighter, or murder during the commission of another felony. In order to seek the death penalty, the prosecution must establish certain criteria, including an aggravating factor and an aggravating circumstance.
