Involuntary manslaughter?
Voluntary manslaughter
Culpable homicide ?
I thought about culpable homicide too but Chambers 10th gives that as a Scottish law term
Sorry - back to the drawing board!
chance medley ( probably the final learnburn answer i will ever give)

I think that bennattod is right. I live and learn. I've never heard that expression before.
And No. I gave up Quizmail/Learnburn when all the answers appeared on AB.
Good Luck mamma.

bennatodd,while looking into your suggestion i came across 'chaud-medley'. i think this could be the answer as chance-medley is the same sort of thing, but in self-defence. i have never heard of either of these phrases, so your reply has really helped. thanks again.
sorry to disagree with you ,but Chance medley is the result of a sudden quarrel, chaud medley is the result of a 'hot affray' the self defence bit is mainly a red herring, but there is very liitle diference between the two in law
