Wilfred A. Vigil, Jr., appeals from a trial court order denying a motion he directed against two counts of an information filed against him. He moved to amend one count of attempted second degree murder and to dismiss a second count of attempted second degree murder. The sole question presented on appeal is whether the trial court correctly ruled that Vigil could be prosecuted for attempted second degree murder under the depraved indifference alternative of section 76-5-203(1)(c) of the Code. Utah Code Ann. § 76-5-203(1)(c) (1990) (amended 1991). *fn1 We hold that Utah does not recognize attempted depraved indifference homicide and reverse the trial court order denying Vigil's motion.
