Violent crimes: Woman accused of involvement in homicide

Individuals who are accused of involvement in a homicide could be somewhat overwhelmed and intimidated by the process, and perhaps uncertain how to proceed. The penalties for violent crimes of this nature are severe if a conviction is obtained, and those who face similar charges may find it beneficial to focus on forming a strong defense. A Wisconsin woman who was previously dismissed from a homicide case is once again facing serious consequences after prosecutors refiled charges against her.

The woman was initially charged with being party to first-degree homicide and reckless injury in relation to her alleged involvement in a recent fatal shooting. According to reports, she was the driver of a car that transported several individuals to a nearby apartment complex where the shooting occurred. She was eventually cleared of both charges following a preliminary hearing in which a judge concluded that there was insufficient evidence to indicate she was aware that the incident would take place.

However, authorities claim to have uncovered evidence of calls between the woman and the man who allegedly committed the homicide on a cell phone found in her vehicle. During this search, they allegedly located a box of handgun ammunition and a magazine. She was taken into custody and is once again facing charges in relation to the shooting.

Those accused of involvement in violent crimes such as homicide may wish to protect their future by challenging the charges, but the process can be complex. When facing similar charges, an individual in Wisconsin could speak with an experienced attorney for assistance in forming a strong defense. Through thorough examination of the charges and evidence, a defense attorney can assist a client in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible during legal proceedings.
