What are the Different Types of Homicide in New Hampshire?
New Hampshire recognizes five distinct types of homicide: murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide, criminally negligent homicide, and aggravated felonious sexual assault.
- First-degree murder: Purposefully causing the death of another person or knowingly causing the death of another person during the commission of a crime.
- Second-degree murder: Knowingly causing the death of another person or recklessly causing the death of another person and demonstrating an indifference to the value of human life.
- Manslaughter: Recklessly causing the death of another person or doing so upon being provoked.
- Negligent homicide: Negligently causing the death of another person (a Class B felony).
- DUI vehicular homicide: Negligently causing the death of another person as a result of driving drunk (a Class A felony).
- Aggravated felonious sexual assault: This is when someone commits a sexual act upon someone else who didn't consent and, in doing so, causes their death.
Any criminal allegation in which it is suspected a loss of life occurred is considered especially serious. Under New Hampshire statutes, there are various criminal charges that address these instances and provide significant penalties for those convicted.
