Murder vs. Manslaughter Charges

While both murder and manslaughter charges are very serious and have harsh felony sentences, manslaughter is the less severely punished of the two. A homicide is termed "manslaughter" if an individual dies due to the reckless actions (or in some cases, the inaction) of another.

Murder is a felony charge when an individual kills or causes the death of another intentionally. This serious charge can result in life in prison without parole.
