The term homicide or murder refers to the crime of causing the death of another human being, without lawful excuse, and with intent to kill them, or with intent to cause them grievous bodily harm.
Manslaughter is less than a murder charge and can be either voluntary or involuntary. Manslaughter is not premeditated and the killing occurs unexpectedly or in the heat of passion.
Attempted murder is a criminal offense that is committed when people attempt to kill other people. People who attempt to kill have outright intentions of taking other peoples’ lives. Attempted murder is taken very serious and can lead to life-long legal penalties if people are convicted.
