Looks like just the 2nd degree murder and the manslaughter charges. I'm not a criminal defense attorney but my memory is that manslaughter is pretty typically given as a lesser included option in murder trials.
I think the issue is that the lesser wasn't included in the original indictment. In many cases the prosecution isn't allowed to add a lesser charge after the trial starts. They need to list all charges up front. Not always the case, but they got a friendly judge. Defense now has grounds for appeal.
