1) Voluntary manslaughter occurs when one person intends to kill another but does so suddenly and as a result of great personal distress. The Wrongdoer must have become very upset before the killing.
2) Involuntary manslaughter occurs when one person, while commiting an unlawful or reckless act, unintenionally kills another.
However, if the reckless act that got the person killed was a felony, it would be considered murder not manslaughter.
2) Two kids were streetracing, one lost control and hit a crowd of spectators. Two of the spectators were killed. The one who lost control was charged with involuntary manslaughter.
