Penalties for Murder Under New Jersey Law
Murder is a crime committed purposefully or knowingly killing another individual or causing harm from which the person later dies. This crime can also be committed by a person who is committing another felony crime, such as during a robbery or while fleeing the scene. Under New Jersey criminal law section 11-3, murder is a first-degree crime. While the penalties can vary depending on the nature of the alleged offense, typically this crime carries 30 years to life in prison without parole.
