Criminal homicide is the first broad category of violent crimes, which involve “the death of another human being.”

The term homicide includes murder, voluntary manslaughter, and involuntary manslaughter. All, of course, involve “the death of another human being,” but the difference between murder and manslaughter is the requirement of malice.
