Murder 2nd, Burglary, and Assault

Case Dismissed

Henderson & Waterkotte, P.C. represented a North City man on charges of murder in the second degree, burglary, and two counts of assault. The state charged our client under a felony-murder theory, which makes it a crime if someone dies in the commission of a felony, in this case burglary. The state alleged our client was entering a home unlawfully and during this crime an individual died as a result of a gunshot wound. H|W vigorously prepared the case for trial from the outset and after 16 months, due to witness and evidentiary issues, the state DISMISSED the case just before trial.
