    Amigos: He visto vario terminos para MANSLAUGHTER; entre ellos, homicidio involuntario, y homicidio culposo.

    He aqui mi lista (parcial) de HOMICIDIOS en USA:

    Homicidio voluntario premeditado (MURDER 1)
    Homicidio voluntario (o intencional) sin premeditación (MURDER 2)
    Homocidio involuntario ( o no intencional) (MANSLAUGHTER)
    Homicidio criminal por negligencia (CRIM. NEGLIGENT HOM).
    Cuando se habla de 'voluntary manslaughter,' la expresión se vuelve larga: Homicdio no intencional, pero voluntario.

    Hay muchas expresiones para esta lista de crímenes, y no digo que mi lista sea la mejor o la única posible. Pero es la que uso en la corte,

    Remember -- homicide -- has a different legal meaning in each state. To interpret it correctly, you really need to find out what it means in the jurisdiction where it is being used.

    I agree with Litiga8or. In NC, I'm using:
    1st Degree Murder: Asesinato en 1er Grado o Asesinato Premeditado (w/Malice, planning, intentional, premeditated and deliberately)
    2nd Degree Murder: Asesinato en 2do Grado (w/malice; No premeditation, no specific intent to kill)
    Voluntary manslaughter: Homicidio Doloso (without malice; in the heat of passion; under Sudden Adequate Provocation; usually adultery, self defense, etc)
    Involuntary manslaughter: Homicidio Culposo (unlawfull; not committed during a felony; like DWI; gun goes off; fail to feed a child, etc.)
