Under Arizona Law, you can be charged with negligent homicide if you cause the death of another person with "criminal negligence". By criminal negligence, the law means that any normal person would have perceived an unjustified risk in the actions that led to the death, but that you didn't.
Negligent homicide charges are often filed in the case of an automobile accident where drugs or alcohol are involved - even if the driver wasn't over the legal limit of .08% of blood alcohol concentration.
Other Wrongful Deaths
But other accidental deaths can result in negligent homicide charges if the prosecutor believes that your actions amount to criminal negligence. Related charges could include murder first degree, second-degree murder, and manslaughter.
