Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought. In Georgia, Malice aforethought can be satisfied in three ways:

Intent to kill;                                    

Acting with depraved disregard for human life; or

A death that occurs while committing a dangerous felony

In Georgia, another type of crime that a person can be charged with when a death occurs is Manslaughter. There are two types of manslaughter in Georgia, voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.

Voluntary manslaughter

Voluntary manslaughter occurs when a person intentionally kills another when they are under the influence of passion. However, this passion must be the type of passion that would make a reasonable person kill under such circumstances.

 Involuntary manslaughter 

 Involuntary manslaughter occurs when a person unintentionally kills another person, but acts with the reckless conduct that causes the death of another.
