Manslaughter Defined

If a human is killed by another, New York state considers this a very serious offense. Manslaughter is the intentional killing of another individual without having premeditated the action. It is different from murder but the penalties are still severe. Malicious intention is the primary difference between murder and manslaughter. In some cases, manslaughter is voluntary when the actions were committed with intent to kill. Manslaughter can also be involuntary, however.
