Including charges of first degree murder, second degree murder, and manslaughter, homicide charges are the most serious offences you can be charged with under the Criminal Code.
Given the severity of these charges, police investigations are often lengthy and incredibly thorough, relying on a vast variety of investigative techniques. Such techniques could include “Mr. Big” investigations, surreptitious wiretap recordings, and aggressive police interrogation tactics to name a few.
