According to a criminal defense attorney in Dana Point, the act of murder has been defined as causing death to other person with malice aforethought. If found guilty, persons engaged in murder could get life in prison. It would also depend on the case for which murder took place; it would have also to be decided whether the conviction is for first or second degree murder and what were the circumstances which led to the heinous crime.
