Manslaughter Penalty

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.
