Can Proven Intent for Felony Murder Be Extended to Attempted Felony Murder ?

In State v. Gray, 654 So. 2d 552 (Fla. 1995) the Court abolished the common law crime of attempted felony murder because the "legal fictions required to support the intent for felony murder were simply too great" to extend to attempted felony murder. 654 So. 2d at 554. In the wake of Gray, the standard jury instructions for attempted felony murder were deleted. See Standard Jury Instr. in Crim. Cases (95-2), 665 So. 2d 212, 213 (Fla. 1995).
