MANSLAUGHTER § 13-1103
In Arizona, Manslaughter occurs when a defendant: recklessly causes the death of another; intentionally or knowingly commits murder in the heat of passion from provocation by the alleged victim; intentionally aids another to commit suicide; or, knowingly or recklessly causing the death of an unborn child by physical injury to the mother.
Even if someone commits Second Degree Murder while being coerced to do so by the use or threatened immediate use of unlawful deadly physical force against that person or a third person which a reasonable person in his situation would have been able to resist, can be charged with Manslaughter.
In Arizona, Manslaughter is a Class 2 Felony and the sentencing range depends on a number of factors such as prior criminal history and whether or not the offense was committed with a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.
Many D.U.I. accidents resulting in death are charged as Manslaughter, and the criminal defense attorneys with the Phoenix, Scottsdale Arizona based Law Offices of Kevin Breger, have substantial experience representing clients in these types of cases.
