What is a "crime of passion?"

I've heard it on the news a few times.

A crime of passion is one where you are so driven by your feelings for someone that you are willing to do anything, like killing your spouses lover.

This means a crime committed in a fit of anger. There is no premeditation for the crime. It is done on the spur of the moment. If a person is called a racial slur and kills someone at that moment because of it, that is a crime of passion. Unfaithful lovers are often killed on the spur of the moment.
