Defending Murder and Manslaughter Charges
The most serious charges are murder, attempted murder, manslaughter and homicide. These cases also get the most publicity and attention. When the alleged crime is murder, however, not only are your liberty and reputation at stake, but also your life This is why it is extremely important that you get experienced representation as early as possible to defend these charges. By statute, there are many types of murder and related criminal charges. Know the definitions. For example, the Pennsylvania Crimes Code defines "Criminal homicide" as "intentionally, knowingly, recklessly or negligently causes the death of another human being."

The crime of "murder" is classified in various degrees. First degree murder is "an intentional killing," second degree murder occurs "when it is committed while defendant was engaged as a principal or an accomplice in the perpetration of a felony," (such as burglary, robbery, arson, rape, etc.) and third degree murder includes "[a]ll other kinds of murder."

Voluntary manslaughter
This was created by common law then later by statute for the who caught their wife cheating and killed the guy. It is a crime of passion where the defendant, at the time of the killing is acting under a sudden and intense passion resulting from serious provocation by the individual killed or another whom the actor endeavors to kill.

Involuntary manslaughter
This is when death results from the defendant doing an unlawful act in a reckless or grossly negligent manner, or the doing of a lawful act in a reckless or grossly negligent manner, such as driving at 110 miles per hour through a school zone.
