While attempted murder is not a category of criminal homicide, it is still considered a violent crime and will be prosecuted as such.  

Under the Texas state penal code, a person commits an offense of attempted murder whenever he or she:

Attempted murder is a lower category of crime than actual murder, however it will be charged as a Class A misdemeanor for which you can be punished by spending up to one year and jail and a $4,000 fine.

In order for attempted murder charges to stick, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant actually intended to murder and made preparations to do so, such as buying supplies, stalking a victim, and other necessary informative endeavors.  For this reason, it can be complicated to actually prove the act of attempted murder depending on the amount of evidence the prosecution possesses.
