Attempted murder is an inchoate offence and requires one to show the same mens rea as for murder itself. It's probably easier to go for the completed offence of GBH (and on this basis the woman must have suffered some horrible injuries.)

I know. GBH carries a max penalty of 5 years and even if convicted (and he'll probably run a defence that she was wearing too short a skirt and was therefore asking to be thrown under a bus and the jury will buy it) and assuming it was a first offence he'll probably only get a suspended sentence.

The international businessman arrested now insists he was in the United States at the time...
