The word homicide is often used interchangeably with murder. However, these two terms carry different meanings.
In fact, several different terms are related to the killing of another as follows:
Murder: the intentional killing of another, as in first-degree, felony murder, and second-degree
The crime of murder can be charged as first- or second-degree. First-degree murder occurs when you intentionally kill a police officer, judge, fire fighter, or some other public servant such as first responders. Second-degree murder occurs when you intentionally kill anyone else. Felony murder occurs as “murder by extension,” when, in the commission of another felony such as robbery or arson, someone is killed. Aggravated murder can also apply in the killing of a police officer or other public person while doing his or her duty or the killing of someone under the age of 14 while acting in a cruel and wanton way.
Involuntary manslaughter is defined as an unintentional killing that results either from negligence or a low-level criminal act such as a misdemeanor. Involuntary manslaughter is distinguished from other forms of homicide because it does not require deliberation or premeditation, or intent.
All of the above charges constitute a felony which will be charged as a Class A, B, C, or D depending on the nature of the offense. Felony convictions in New York can entail years in prison, life in prison, or life in prison with the possibility of parole. You may also be subject to heavy fines as well as lengthy probation as well as a civil lawsuit for wrongful death.
