Murder & Manslaughter in Tennessee

Homicide, the killing of another person, is the most severe violent crime a person can commit. Sometimes a homicide may be legally justifiable, as in a case of self-defense. Illegal homicide, referred to as either murder or manslaughter, will depend upon the specific circumstances and the intent of the accused. Murder is intentional and premeditated; whereas manslaughter is unplanned and may be accidental or unintentional.
