Voluntary manslaughter is frequently called a "warmth of energy" wrongdoing. Deliberate homicide happens when a man; is emphatically incited (under circumstances that could comparably incite a sensible individual) and murders in the warmth of energy stimulated by that incitement. For "warmth of energy" to exist, the individual must not have had adequate time to "chill" from the incitement. That the killing isn 't viewed as first or second-degree homicide is an admission to human shortcoming. Executioners who act in the warmth of energy may murder purposefully, yet the passionate setting is a relieving element that lessens their ethical blameworthiness.
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives.

We can see how greed starts to take root in their hearts. They both clearly had a comfortable position. We can say this because not just anyone gets to be close friends with the King and have posh titles. But their wanting more, that greed and ambition, caused them to plot and carry a hideous crime, of murdering a human being, and then lie and blame it on someone else, not saying anything for years. And yes, at the moment Macbeth felt extremely guilty, but this guilt did not move him to at least come clean and try to fix things.
