According to a report from ClickOrlando, law enforcement officers have made an arrest in relation to a fatal 2021 shooting that occurred at a business center in Orange County. A 23-year-old-man named Ramon Luis Arroyo Galva is facing a first-degree murder charge. In this article, our Orlando homicide defense lawyer explains what we know about the case and provides an overview of first degree murder charges more broadly.

Shooting on Lee Road: Arrest Made, Charges Filed, Alleged Motive Still Unclear 

Ramon Luis Arroyo Galva was apprehended on Monday for his alleged involvement in a fatal shooting incident in Orange County, Florida. He is facing very serious first-degree murder charges. Mr. Arroyo Galva is accused of killing a 43-year-old man named Vinh Chung. Despite the lack of clarity around Chung being the intended victim or the shooter’s motive, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is moving forward with the charges. As with any other defendant charged in Florida, Mr. Arroyo Galva is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

An Overview of First Degree Murder Charges in Florida 

First degree murder is among the most serious charges that any person can face in Florida. It is a severe allegation that carries very serious criminal penalties in Florida, potentially including life imprisonment or even the death penalty. Here is an overview of the key things to know about first degree murder charges in Florida:

  • The Statutory Definition: Florida law defines first-degree murder as the premeditated killing of a human being, or the death of a human being caused during the commission of a specific felony. It involves a deliberate intent to cause death, demonstrating a level of premeditation or planning.
  • The Different Degrees of Murder: In Florida, murder is classified into three degrees. First-degree murder is the most serious, followed by second and third-degree murder. Second-degree involves a depraved mind without regard for human life but lacks premeditation. Third-degree murder occurs when someone is killed during the commission of a non-violent felony.
  • The Criminal Penalties: First-degree murder is a capital offense in Florida, punishable by life imprisonment or the death penalty. The penalty is determined based on various factors such as the severity of the crime, the defendant’s prior criminal record, and the circumstances of the murder.
  • Every Person Charged has a Right to Raise a Zealous Defense: Defenses can range from asserting an alibi, arguing for self-defense, disputing the premeditated nature of the crime, or questioning the validity of the evidence.
