Determining that "malice aforethought" existed or was present can be critical part of defining a death as an act of murder or as manslaughter, which could be either voluntary or involuntary. As the degree of punishment can be substantially different this can be a critical part of any defense involving a loss of life.

First Degree Murder Vs. Second Degree Murder

The difference between 1st degree murder and 2nd degree murder involves establishing the factor of a premeditated intention to take another's life. The factor of time does not have to be a certain length and can in fact be just moments before the act took place. While any murder conviction can carry enormous monetary penalties and extensive time in prison, up to lifetime confinement, only a 1st degree murder conviction can deliver the death penalty.
