Homicide matters arise when deliberate, reckless, unlawful, dangerous, or criminally negligent acts result in the death of a human being.
Examples of homicide include:
Dangerous driving causing death
These matters are usually heard in the Supreme Court or County Court, and at their highest can carry a sentence of life imprisonment for some offences.
Scientific Forensic procedures, such as fingerprint analysis, ballistics (the science of projectiles and firearms) and DNA evidence have an increasingly important role in homicide proceedings. We support our murder lawyers Melbourne continuing professional development in order to assure they stay fully informed of all recent developments in these fields and their impact on current law and defence of these charges.
