Criminal Law:

Manslaughter- Voluntary

Voluntary manslaughter is typically defined as an intentional killing, in which the offender had no prior intent to kill, such as a killing that happens in the "heat of passion."  Consequently, the circumstances leading to the killing must be the kind that would cause a reasonable person to become emotionally or mentally disturbed; otherwise, the killing may be charged as a first-degree or second-degree murder.
