It is often reported that one person kills another, and instead of being found guilty of murder, they were found guilty of manslaughter. Some say this is down to 'technicalities' in the law, others say that pleading manslaughter is a way of trying to get a lesser sentence.
But what are the differences in defence to both murder and manslaughter? What actions make it clear that a charge should murder, rather than manslaughter? And what are sentences given for these crimes?
What about those that kill and do not get charged at all, what could be a defence to not being charged for murder? Do not miss out on finding out all of this information, and much more by listening to Hatti Suvari's conversation with senior Barrister, Simon Spence QC.
