It's called negligent homicide, and generally stems from the language of the murder statute for any given jurisdiction. The California case that settled this issue (in California) is called People v Burden (72 Cal. App. 3d 603) (1977). Your jurisdiction almost certainly has a similar case. It's fairly ubiquitous. See also Walker v Superior Court (47 Cal. 3d 112 (1988)). Basically the same issue.
