A prospective jury in a Dallas District Court were surprised by the definition of voluntary manslaughter that they were given, prior to their being selected for a murder trial.

Voluntary Manslaughter is an intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is under the immediate influence of sudden passion, arising from an adequate cause, such as when a spouse’s mate is found in a ‘compromising position‘.

“See, I have a problem with that passion business”, responded one of the jury candidates.

“During my first marriage”, she continued, “I came in and found my husband in bed with my neighbor. All I did was divorce him. I had no idea that I could have shot him”.

For some reason, she wasn’t selected for the jury.
