Attempted homicide is the botched act of a human being trying to physically kill another human being.
Attempted homicide is a felony charge.
The crime of attempted homicide occurs when a person acts deliberately, intentionally, or recklessly with extreme disregard for human life.
- Legal definition of attempted murder requires you to “more than physically prepare” to kill someone
- Must be proven that murder, not serious injury, was the intent and that the crime was planned
- Not a crime committed in the heat of the moment
