Yes, assuming you are in the US. The 6th amendment to the United States Constitution states that you have the right to know the charges being brought against you, among other things. However if you are just talking about an investigation the police are not obligated to tell you anything.
The police could tell you if they were investigating you for murder but they are under no obligation to do so until they decided to charge you. The decision for them to do so would depend on how well their investigation is going.
