If you’re facing charges against you because of the belief that you were involved in circumstances surrounding the death of another person, that does not necessarily mean that you will be charged with murder. Legally speaking, murder is one of several different crimes which all fall under the umbrella of homicide.
Homicide charges could include:
- Murder: The unexcused and legally unjustified killing of one individual by another, with deliberate malice
- Voluntary manslaughter: The intentional but non-premeditated killing of another individual – for example, killings which occur at the spur of the moment as the product of anger, shock, or other sudden emotions are often categorized as voluntary manslaughter
- Involuntary manslaughter: The unintentional killing of an individual during other criminal activity
- Reckless homicide: The accidental killing of another individual due to the reckless behavior of the accused
