Facing serious charges after an event that led to the death of another individual can be a scary experience. Manslaughter charges can come with serious consequences if a conviction for such allegations occurs. Therefore, if individuals are accused of such criminal actions, they may wish to find out more on their options for addressing those charges.
Because of their smaller size, motorcycles are often much more difficult to see in comparison to more traditional motor vehicles. Unfortunately, motorcyclists can also suffer from more severe injuries during a collision due to the lack of protection. One woman in Texas has recently been charged with manslaughter following a collision that resulted in a death.
Texas authorities have arrested a 30-year-old woman for the shooting death of her boyfriend in their home in the Houston suburb of Baytown. Police say that the murder suspect shot the man in the head while he slept, then dismembered his body because it was too heavy to carry. Even though the woman had an argument with the man earlier that evening, the allegations of dismemberment with a machete and methodically disposing of the body tend to suggest malice aforethought.
Whenever a crime has been committed, Texas law enforcement officers are vigilant in pursuing leads and identifying suspects. This process often involves interviewing witnesses and identifying persons of interest. Many times, these persons of interest are then sought after in order to further the investigation. This is especially true if it is a murder investigation.
Shots are fired and panic strikes fear in the hearts of those in the vicinity. Law enforcement officers arrive and begin to ask questions. Emergency personnel also arrive and begin to treat the injured. Fortunately, the average Texas resident never experiences a scenario such as this one where murder and injury prevail.
Many times, individuals are judged based upon who they associate with. If one associates with a group of individuals suspected of being part of a gang or participating in criminal activity, then it is common for the public and even some law enforcement officials to assume that the individual is part of this too. Texas law enforcement officials are now on the hunt for one such individual whom they believe to have committed murder on two separate occasions.
Judging from the headlines, we might believe we live in times that are more violent than in the past. In the wake of several recent trials in which juries acquitted police officers charged in deadly shootings, it might also leave some asking whether justice has taken a biased turn for the worse.
