    If Ann was involuntary intoxicated by John, and Ann showed signs of difficulties in breathing, which John failed to notice, and Ann as a result died, is John liable under murder, gross negligence manslaughter or omission liability?

    I'm not sure what you intend the difference to be between 'gross negligence manslaughter' and 'omission liability'. Seems to me that John is guilty of both unlawful act manslaughter (the unlawful act being either a battery or malicious poisoning) and gross negligence manslaughter (since he created the dangerous situation, a la Miller).
