Negligent homicide can be accomplished in two ways:
A person commits negligent homicide when he or she negligently causes the death of another person because of operating a vehicle, aircraft, or a watercraft: (1) While intoxicated, or (2) While the person’s BAC is 0.08 or higher. A person who commits negligent homicide in this way is guilty of a Class C Felony.
A person also commits negligent homicide if he or she negligently causes the death of any person. A person who commits negligent homicide in this way is guilty of a Class A Misdemeanor.
