that would most likely have been considered voluntary manslaughter if the jury+judge believed him. So either way it's either (second degree) murder or voluntary manslaughter conviction.
It's true, that's assuming the jury and judge believed him. The fact that the game made it a senator that Lee killed seems to insinuate that some corruption occurred in the trial. Biased, if you will.
I'd imagine defense of provocation would work nicely in this case, assuming Lee played his cards right. Although, as stated by the game, Lee got a life sentence.
