State v. Palmer
In State v. Palmer, 8 Conn. App. 496, 504, 513 A.2d 738, cert. denied, 201 Conn. 808, 515 A.2d 380 (1986) the Court stated that reckless endangerment in the first degree under General Statutes 53a-63 is not a lesser included crime of attempted murder because it is possible to commit the crime of attempted murder without first committing the crime of reckless endangerment in the first degree.
Thus, in Palmer, the latter crime "was not a necessary step in the progression to the crime of attempted murder as charged in the information." Id., 504.
General Statutes 53a-63 (a) provides: "A person is guilty of reckless endangerment in the first degree when, with extreme indifference to human life, he recklessly engages in conduct which creates a risk of serious physical injury to another person."
