Homicide is defined as a death at the hands of another person. Under Wisconsin law, there are varying degrees of criminal homicide depending on the circumstances of the case, including:

  • First-degree homicide;
  • Second-degree homicide;
  • Vehicular homicide associated with driving under the influence (DUI) or operating while intoxicated (OWI);
  • Negligent homicide;
  • Reckless homicide;
  • Vehicular manslaughter;
  • Involuntary manslaughter;
  • Homicide related to boating and water sports; and
  • Manslaughter.

We understand that homicide charges may be filed in conjunction with other crimes and that there is no such thing as a simple homicide case. There are countless factors and variables that could affect the charges against you. Our Waukesha County homicide attorneys are very experienced and fully equipped to help you understand the situation and to make the best decisions for protecting your rights and your future.

The Difference Between Homicide and Murder

Wisconsin law draws a distinction between homicide and criminal homicide. Criminal homicide refers to the taking of another's life related to the commission of a crime. Homicide, by comparison, is the taking of another person's life regardless of whether another crime was being committed. At Bucher Law Group, LLC, we will work closely with you so that you are clear regarding the charges against you. Your unique circumstances will dictate how to proceed in building a strong, responsible defense. Our experience in this area is significant, as Attorney Paul Bucher is a former district attorney who handled hundreds of homicides in his career.

It is important to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney the moment you become aware that you are a person of interest in a homicide case. Do not speak to the police, prosecutors, or any other individuals until you consult with a lawyer. By talking to investigators without the benefit of legal counsel, you could inadvertently incriminate yourself, even if you have done nothing wrong. Contact the best. Contact Bucher Law Group, LLC immediately.
