INSIDER COMMENTARY:

A second degree murder charges alleges the murder was an intentional killing that was not premeditated, planned or deliberate.  Second degree murder charges are also laid when evidence suggests the intentional application of force was “reckless” and showed a wanton disregard for human life.
