Voluntary, Involuntary Manslaughter, and Vehicular Homicide in Georgia
The basic definition of manslaughter in Georgia is the unpremeditated killing of another person. Although a form of criminal homicide, manslaughter most often involves deaths that are not preplanned and that may be accidental or due to negligence. For example, vehicular manslaughter may involve a situation where a drunk driver caused an auto accident that resulted in the death of another driver or a passenger. While this action was certainly not intentional, it is considered a form of manslaughter. Another example involving an intentional homicide may be a crime committed in the "heat of passion." A man who comes home to find his wife in bed with another man may react violently and kill the man or the woman. Depending upon the particular circumstances, this may be classified as voluntary manslaughter.
