Death during a felony crime can bring felony murder charges

The laws regarding murder in North Carolina are by and large clear. However, people are often surprised to learn about the charge of felony murder through accomplice liability. A felony murder charge can be brought against someone who is involved in the commission of a felony that results in another person's death. This applies even if murder was not the intent or if the person charged did not directly kill someone.

Capital offenses in North Carolina

In North Carolina, certain serious felonies are punishable by capital punishment. Capital punishment under state law is completed by lethal injection. The death penalty has been used in the state since colonial times. Today, it is only used in cases in which another person's death is caused.

New federal prosecutor in North Carolina

The county commissioners representing New Hanover County plan to participate in the Take Back North Carolina initiative. This program announced by the U.S. Attorney's Office will distribute federal prosecutors throughout the state to increase federal prosecution of drug and gang crimes. One commissioner said that the entire board approved of paying for a second prosecutor to work within the county and supplement the efforts of another prosecutor funded by the federal government.
