Premeditated VS manslaughter<quoted text>so you saying its ok for ANYONE to kill there abuser no matter what.
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.
