This video is a simple explanation of vehicular homicide, which is murder caused by the "negligent operation" of a vehicle by the driver. this is an important type of murder to have because when a death happens during a car accident that was due to the other driver's negligence they must be held accountable for it. This kind of homicide is usually used when a driver was under the influence. Most drivers who get charged with vehicular homicide are drivers who were under the influenced and will also be charged with a DUI. to be charged with vehicular homicide there does not have to be any intent, but if there is thee chances are there will be a different charge with a stricter punishment.
This is a video explaining the differences between the 4 types of homicides: First degree murder, Second degree murder, Voluntary Manslaughter,, and Involuntary Manslaughter. although only contrasting in name by one or word or letter they have very distinct differences. They all can be easily confused but as explained by the video, murder is all about intent and the killers state of mind which is the harder part to prove when in court. it is important to classify the types of murders because they do carry different intents which ultimately determines how much time you serve. for example if you do something with intent or on purpose the punishment received should and will be more severe than someone doing something without intent. by determining if there is any intent throughout trial will play a factor in the sentencing process and also a role in bail. for example if you are being arraigned for 1st degree murder there may not be bail because of the malice in the crime versus someone being arraigned for voluntary manslaughter they may get bond because of the lack of intent and the crime may have happened in "the heat of the moment". First degree murder is murder with premeditation and intent of malice, while second degree murder is voluntary without premeditation. Voluntary Manslaughter is self explanatory as far as the voluntary part but it is usally described as a killing done in the "heat of the moment" while involuntary manslaughter is not on purpose hence the word "involuntary".
