Along with murder, manslaughter is among the most serious criminal offences a person can face. Any culpable homicide that is not murder or infanticide is manslaughter.

Manslaughter trials are incredibll complex and include issues such as intent, DNA, forensics, ballistics and undercover police operations known as Mr. Big. People facing a charge of manslaughter require a highly skilled lawyer to deal with such complexities.


Murder Reduced To Manslaughter

Murder charges can be reduced to manslaughter in certain circumstances. One such circumstance is when the killing occurred in the heat of the moment as a result of sudden provocation. Another circumstance arises where intoxication is so significant it affects the person’s ability to form intent.

In order to successfully have a murder charge reduced to manslaughter, you need a highly skilled and experienced lawyer like Cory Wilson. Your choice of lawyer is one of the most important decisions you can make when charged with such serious offences.
