Manslaughter is similar to murder, in that both involve the death of another human being, and though both are very serious, manslaughter is the lighter accusation. Manslaughter is invoked when a death occurs, but the person accused of causing the death did not willfully or intentionally cause the death, or caused the death through recklessness or negligence, not malice.

Such is generally the case with deaths that result from drunk driving or any circumstance whereby the control, judgment, or faculties of the person who caused the death are impaired beyond the ability to be held reasonably responsible for the willful or intentional killing of another person.

Voluntary manslaughter is the case if the victim died as a result of harm caused by the accused, but the accused did not have the intent to kill the victim.
