Murder Charges in Alaska

There are two types of murder charges in Alaska: first-degree and second-degree murder.

First-degree murder is described as a deliberate and premediated killing. Furthermore, it is first-degree murder to commit or attempt to commit a kidnapping or sex crime against a child under 16 years of age and the child dies as a result of the conduct or committing or attempting to commit first-degree criminal mischief and someone dies during the alleged offense.

On the other hand, second-degree murder does not involve premeditation. If a person has an intention to cause serious injury against another person – or he/she knew that his/her conduct would result in another person’s physical injury or death – and someone else dies as a result of that conduct, then it the offense is considered second-degree murder.

Both types of murder are unclassified felonies, punishable by imprisonment between 20 and 99 years, along with a maximum fine of $500,000.
