Violent crimes are sometimes fueled by hate

When a violent crime occurs, one of the most important things that detectives do is to try to figure out the motive behind the crime. The motive behind the crime is important because it can be used in the prosecution of the crime. It can also be used as a way to try to prevent other similar crimes from occurring.

Permitless concealed carry bill advances in Missouri

Missouri is considering a change to the state law regarding concealed weapons. The Missouri House of Representatives recently passed a measure known as the Constitutional Carry bill.

Spousal privilege might hinder case against suspected murderer

Defense options for involuntary manslaughter vary greatly

In our previous blog post, we discussed the case of the woman who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter because of butt implants that led to a woman dying. That case brings an important point to mind -- the stark difference between an involuntary manslaughter charge and a voluntary manslaughter charge.

Fatal butt implant procedure leads to criminal charges

Being charged with a violent crime, such as manslaughter, is sometimes the result of something that seemed innocent enough when you were doing it. Consider the case of the woman who is now facing criminal charges in Missouri because she gave a woman illegal butt injections. The woman with the butt injections died. Now the woman who did the illegal procedure is facing first-degree involuntary manslaughter charges, which carries up to 7 years in prison.
