The man was motionless and unconscious for the three seconds in between .
The second body slam was violent assault on what was basically a defenseless sleeping person.
The second body slam landed the unconscious victim on the back of his head and neck.
Death was caused by injury to the head and neck sustained from the second slam.
The second body slam was manslaughter.
Slamming him the first time may have been appropriate and arguably could be said to be defensive .
Slamming the unconscious victim the second time was rage induced excessive violence landing him on his head and that broke his neck.
WAKE COUNTY, NC - Markeith Council was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter after he beat to death a prisoner in full view of security cameras on June 4th, 2013. Shon McClain never woke up from the blunt force trauma brought on by Council’s beating. In a twist of fate, Council was sent to the same correctional facility where he killed the prisoner.
McClain was in jail on charges resulting from possession of an open container. According to the law in North Carolina, involuntary manslaughter charges are brought if someone kills a person: “without malice, premeditation or deliberation.”

There is no legal reason to assault an unconscious person. An assault at that point is punitive or vengeful, not defensive. If that assault results in death you have a clear case of manslaughter.
The court found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter. IMHO that was giving him the benefit of the doubt based on the danger from the number of inmates in the immediate area.
