N. Idaho Man Wants New Sentence In Wife's Death

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A northern Idaho man serving up to 40 years in prison for the death of his pregnant wife and their unborn child wants a new sentencing.

The Lewiston Tribune reports Silas Parks filed a petition for post-conviction relief in Idaho's 2nd District Court earlier this week.

Parks contends his sentence is cruel and unusual. He also argues in his motion that his attorneys gave him inadequate legal representation and that there is a possibility his wife died of
"automatic suffocation," which would mean the homicide was really an accident.

Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said Wednesday he was disappointed with the petition because Parks appeared to have accepted responsibility for the death of his wife and unborn child
when pleading guilty to charges of voluntary manslaughter and arson.
