About the Book
Murder is different. No other crime permanently deprives the victim of everything he possesses, including his life. As a consequence, the trial for a murder case is unique because the crime has raised the stakes -- for the victim, for the victim's survivors, and for the defendant.
How to Try a Murder Case covers the preparation from the very beginning -- even before the crime was committed -- and progresses through the investigation to searches, arrest, and interrogation. This book explains the law, provides examples, and gives advice by offering the reader vicarious experience in trying a murder case. It covers topics that are most essential to the successful litigation of homicide cases, such as mental health issues that often influence both the litigation and sentencing processes.
