Manslaughter vs. Murder
When a person recklessly causes the death of another, it is deemed manslaughter. When a person causes someone's death through an act of criminal negligence, it is deemed criminal homicide. Murder is defined as a homicide committed when the individual intended to kill the victim. This could be due to sudden passion, during the commission of a felony, or by intending to cause serious bodily injury and committing an act that is clearly dangerous to human life and results in the individual's death.
Capital murder is the worst of these and is the only offense under TX law punishable by the death sentence, which, in some cases, can be reduced to life in prison.
