Murder as intent to commit GBH is sufficient for murder.

Manslaughter tends to be self defence.
If you beat someone up (i.e. intend to harm/injure) and they die as a result it's murder.

You can only be committed of manslaughter if you have sufficient defence e.g. diminished responsibility or loss of control..so may relate to the mental health of the defendant or an act being committed in the heat of the moment.
Murder usually would be the answer I think unless a defence is presented.
