O.R.C. 2903.04 Involuntary Manslaughter


This crime is also called misdemeanor manslaughter because it can be charged against someone who (like felony murder) kills someone while in the commission of a misdemeanor. Additionally, someone committing a felony and then proximately causes the death of another can be charged with this crime—obviously the crime would have to be involuntary to fit this category.

A conviction of this crime is punishable either by a first-degree felony at its maximum or a third-degree felony at its minimum.
