For the American judicial system, homicide has remained one of the most complex criminal cases in American judicial system; with the mortality rate of individuals between the ages of 17 and 30 sky rocketing since 2006. Although homicide is legally defined as the unlawful killing of another human being, the act contains an unusually large gray area.

For example, justifiable homicide, in which a person is killed but it is deemed justifiable. Manslaughter is a subcategory of homicide that is separated into two categories, voluntary and involuntary. Voluntary manslaughter occurs when a person is killed from the provocation of another, while involuntary manslaughter is classified as when a person is killed through recklessness.
