  • First-degree murder, or murder committed with pre-meditated intent; while serving a life sentence; for hire; against a peace officer, judge or witness; or while committing another violent crime felony.
  • Second-degree murder, or murder committed in an act of emotional disturbance, causing the death of another due to recklessness while committing another felony, or assisting another in committing suicide.
