Yes, felonious Assault is defined by statute-“No person shall knowingly cause or attempt to cause serious physical harm to another”, and alternatively, “No person shall cause physical harm to another by means of a deadly weapon”.

If the victim later dies from the wounds from the felonious assault, a murder charge can be brought.

The legal question in the subsequent murder case is as follows: Were the injuries caused by the felonious assault the proximate cause of the victim’s death?

Depending on the length of time that has elapsed between the felonious assault and the death if the victim, many intervening causes of the victim’s death may have occurred, giving rise to possible defenses.
