Unlike First Degree Murder, premeditated intent is not necessary to commit Second Degree Murder.

Intending or knowing that ones conduct will cause death or an extreme indifference to human life by recklessly creating a grave risk and in turn death, can result in a Second Degree Murder charge being filed against a defendant.

It is also possible to be charged with Second Degree Murder in a D.U.I. alcohol-related accident that involves death by showing extreme indifference to human life.

Second Degree Murder is a Class 1 Felony and if convicted, the defendant can face a minimum sentence of ten years to a maximum sentence of up to twenty-two years imprisonment.
