What's The Difference Between Manslaughter & Murder?

Although the charges share similarities, murder and manslaughter have many important differences. Manslaughter generally refers to crimes where there was no forethought or intent. This includes “heat of the moment” crimes, wherein a person is irrational and ends another person’s life in an act of passion. Manslaughter can also refer to involuntary crimes, such as killing someone through negligence rather than a deliberate act of violence. Murder is the more serious of the two charges, as it is generally only applied when the defendant acted with the intent to kill.

Our team can assist you if you have been charged with any of the following:

  • Murder
  • Voluntary Manslaughter
  • Involuntary Manslaughter
  • Reckless Homicide
  • Attempted Murder
