There are significant changes in the interpretation of the homicide law that are ongoing. For example, the crime of Vehicular Manslaughter in the Second Degree is a D Felony and occurs when a person is killed as a result of contact with a motor vehicle and the person driving the vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs or was operating the motor vehicle recklessly or negligently. Now District attorneys are charging people with Murder with what would otherwise be a vehicular manslaughter charge. Specifically, your New York Homicide lawyer will tell you that the Nassau County District Attorney is now prosecuting people for murder who would otherwise have been charged with DWI when a death occurs.
