While manslaughter and murder both involve the unlawful killing of another
individual, murder entails an intentional killing that is committed with
malice aforethought, which means the intention to kill or doing so with
reckless indifference to human life. Manslaughter is also an unlawful
killing, but without malice aforethought.
Manslaughter in Texas is considered a second degree felony. A second degree
felony is associated with a prison sentence between two and 20 years and/or
a fine of up to $10,000.
