If you're charged and convicted of Capital Murder you will get either life in prison or the death penalty or both.

You could be sentenced to life in prison and also have the death penalty on top of it.

So either way you're not coming back home if you get arrested and convicted and sentenced for the Capital Murder.

Most states have a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole for capital murder.

Capital Murder is a serious offense and prison time is guaranteed.

Most people convicted of capital murder in the USA get life without parole or death penalty which the execution can then be carried out within 5 to 15 years.

You're either gonna die of natural causes in prison or die of execution.
