Premeditated VS manslaughter
Manslaughter in Louisiana is a homicide that would normally be considered first- or second-degree murder, but which was committed in such a sudden passion that a normal person would be deprived of their regular faculties. A homicide is only manslaughter rather than murder if it was committed immediately following provocation. If the jury believes that enough time had passed that your "blood had actually cooled", you will be charged with murder instead.

If convicted of manslaughter in Louisiana, you will be sentenced to a maximum of 40 years in prison. However, if the victim of the manslaughter was under 10 years old and died as a result of battery, the sentencing scale differs. In this case, you will be sentenced to a minimum of 10 years, with a maximum of 50. Unlike a regular manslaughter sentence, with this second type of manslaughter you have no chance of shortening your prison term through parole or suspension.

You plan to kill someone AND drive 4 hours - shoot THEM while they sleep 7 times and drive back to TEXAS....

IF THAT WAS NOT PREMEDITATED, WHAT IS?? Can anyone tell me what is the definition of "premeditated" and its sentence?

How sick and we can't figure out what this world is coming to.... Look at our JUDICIAL system IT SUCKS!!!

I would have to say the assailant does or did too.... that is "blow" the right person(s).

We have one Barbara Souza who killed her husband in self defense. She has been in jail / no bond reduction like Denna got / and no plea bargin to manslaughter NOTHING. I guess she don't know the right people or blow the right horns!!

A Vermilion Parish woman learned her fate for the alleged killing of her ex husband.
Today, 45-year-old Denna Decuir plead guilty to a manslaughter for the January of 2009 killing of 60 year Milton Decuir.
Decuir was originally on trial for second degree murder but the charges were downgraded to manslaughter. Tonight she remains free on bond until her sentencing date.

Oh please Denna is not a murderer any more than you are. Like "Unbelievable" said.....every dog has their day.....and i personally am ready to see that day get here. You do what you have to to protect your children - but when your child behaves the way she has been and does the vicious things she is doing - you cut them loose and let them take the wrap for their own mistakes....no matter how much it hurts!

Sheena wouldn't know devastation if it slapped her in her face - HA! And your statement above makes absolutely NO sense! Yes she admitted to murder - to protect the one who did it.....when all along she should have left her to face the consequences of what SHE did!

Boy but "Beyond Belief" YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD..... That is the reason she cancelled her divorce proceedings in 2006 because she wanted to give him nothing and keep everything.... GREEDY

Check the records that is not all she was greedy to.... family assets too..... EVERYTHING SHOULD BE SEIZED AND SOLD AS SHERIFFS SALE TO HELP DEFRAY COSTS OF THE INVESTIGATION AND COURT PRECEEDINGS.

We have one Barbara Souza who did kill her husband in a heat of passion which is manslaughter BUT SHE IS CHARGED WITH MURDER AND NO BOND REDUCTION..... POOR BARBARA I GUESS SHE DON'T KNOW THE RIGHT FOLKS.

Someone should contact Chuck Huebener and protest this.... The Decuir family should protest in front of the Courthouse....
