While manslaughter and murder both involve the unlawful killing of another individual, murder entails an intentional killing that is committed with malice aforethought. Manslaughter does not. It is considered a second-degree felony, and can include a prison sentence between 2 and 20 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
