    It's funny how certain court cases finish at the speed of light and others take a eternity.

    Murder is -
    To take the life of another human being intentionally, and it's usually premeditaded, which means planning.
    Altercation is -
    A heated or angry dispute; noisy argument or controversy.
    Now which is it? If its altercation then its manslaughter not murder.
