Culpable Homicide

July 29, 2023

Culpable homicide is a term used to describe cases of unlawful killing that do not meet all the criteria for murder. It generally covers situations where there was an intention to cause harm, but the level of intention falls short of a specific intent to kill. Culpable homicide may involve recklessness, negligence, or a lack of reasonable care leading to someone’s death.

The degree of culpability in culpable homicide cases can vary, leading to different classifications like manslaughter, negligent homicide, or involuntary manslaughter, depending on the jurisdiction.

Penalties for culpable homicide are generally less severe than those for murder but can still result in substantial prison sentences or other forms of punishment.
