And just for a little general legal background:
 An information is a charge filed by the District Attorney. It's not always necessary, depending on state law, to seek an indictment from a grand jury. An information works just as well.
 A conviction of manslaughter indicates that the jury didn't find that the defendant acted with malice (evil) intent, but it is a finding of criminal culpability. A verdict of manslaughter is common if the jury finds that the defendant acted impulsively in the heat of the moment or acted recklessly.
 It appears that in the case Hook686 called to our attention that the jury verdict was appealed and that the verdict was upheld by the court of appeals.
 Note that legal expenses through a jury trial can easily run from $50,000 to $150,000, or even more. And an appeal doesn't come cheap either.
