While no manslaughter charges involve premeditation, there is a difference between intentional and unintentional manslaughter. Involuntary manslaughter occurs when there is no intent to kill, even in the heat of the moment or under duress.

Technically, all manslaughter charges are punishable by the penalties outlined in Section 750.321, and there is no legal distinction between involuntary and voluntary manslaughter. However, certain cases involve intent to kill without premeditation, and others are truly accidental. Judges and juries may be more likely to “go easy” on involuntary manslaughter offenses, though extremely serious penalties will apply in any case that involves the death of a victim.
Involuntary manslaughter can occur as a result of a fight, for example, if a person is punched and then falls and hits their head, or as a result of negligent driving, or another careless but non-malicious act. Voluntary manslaughter, on the other hand, would include arguments where in the heat of the moment the alleged offender decides to kill the other person, and other cases of intentional, but not planned, actions.
