Manslaughter is a legal termwhich is used for homicide and it is a crime that relates to killing a person but without maliceaforethought and this crime is less culpable than murder1.

This assignment is prepared in consideration of the criminal lawapplicable in Ireland an ILAC method has been followed here. Initially, it talks about the issuesthat are related to this particular case, then the relevant law is being talked about, then the lawhas been applied to the facts of the case and finally a conclusion has been drawn.Issues in the caseThe case is related to a person named Joffrey Baratheon who has been convicted of CerseiBaratheon’s (his mother) manslaughter. Since Cersei was old, infirm and was suffering fromadvanced primary progressive multiple sclerosis, so Joffrey Baratheon’s wife MargaeryBaratheon invited her to live with them and she took her care as she was a qualified nurse.But,Cersei would refuse food and drink, would refuse to allow her to be cleaned and often timeswould refuse her prescribed medication. Margaery was at her wit’s end and implored Joffreyto try to assist his mother. Initially, Joffrey was reluctant as she did not like his mother much,but laterhe realized his moral duty as a sonand attempted to feed and clean her and give hermedication. But, Cersei put a condition on him that she will eat and drink only when Joffreywill get rid of his wife. This enraged Joffrey and he left her to rot. When Cersei’s brotherarrived to see her, he found her condition very bad and hospitalized her. Following admission,Cersei initially made progress in response to treatment, but unfortunately while in hospital shedeveloped pneumonia and later Cersei Baratheon died.1Roger Kirby, Ian Franklin and Jenny Vaughan, 'Manslaughter And Preventable Harm' (2015) 6 Trends in Urology &Men's Health.2'A New Test For Involuntary Manslaughter In California: Criminal Law.
