Voluntary manslaughter occurs when the killing is the result of a sudden quarrel or heat of passion. This charge can arise when a person is provoked to the point of losing control, causing them to act rashly and commit a killing. If convicted, the defendant can face up to 11 years in state prison.
Involuntary manslaughter occurs when a person causes the death of another person due to criminal negligence, such as drunk driving or recklessness with a deadly weapon. This charge can carry up to 4 years in state prison.
