Manslaughter in Pennsylvania?

Question by Brennan K: Manslaughter in Pennsylvania?
If you turn yourself in, show tons of remorse, and there was no premeditated intent to injure, as well as a mental imbalance, (schizophrenia) along with a drug addiction, would the defendent get a lighter sentence? I would think rehab, then maybe a halfway house/some jailtime. Does anyone have any other possible penalties?

This is NOT condoning murder or violence in any way.
Just so everyone knows, this isn’t me. I just heard this on the news.
I read some of the PA law, and it says that you have to be committing a crime for second degree murder. And all other types of murder are third degree.
