Criminal Law:

Murder- Second-degree

Second-degree murder is typically defined as

1) an intentional killing that is not premeditated or planned, nor committed in a reasonable "heat of passion"

2) a killing caused by dangerous conduct and the offender's obvious lack of concern for human life.

Second-degree murder may best be understood as the middle ground between first-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter.
