Criminal Homicide Cases
Murder, manslaughter, and criminally negligent homicide may be called criminal homicides. If a person takes the life of another human being knowingly, intentionally, recklessly, or with criminal negligence, he may be convicted of criminal homicide. Homicides that are not justifiable or excusable are crimes.
Murder involves premeditation and malice aforethought. There are different degrees of murder. Murder in the first degree is the most serious, usually based on the intent and/or cruelty of the crime and carries the harshest punishments.
Another form of criminal homicide is manslaughter, which is a lesser crime, although still extremely serious. The difference between murder and manslaughter lies in the intent of the perpetrator. The two types of manslaughter are voluntary and involuntary. In voluntary, the individual commits a homicide in the heat of passion. Involuntary manslaughter is not intentional but committed out of a failure to act in a responsible fashion to safeguard human life.
