- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A Fairbanks jury has convicted a man of severely beating the mother of his children. Edward Parks V was convicted of two kidnapping counts, four counts of felony assault and witness tampering. Prosecutors say Parks on Dec. 18, 2011, took the woman to a location in south Fairbanks and assaulted her. They returned to their home and he bound her with belts and kicked and choked her. Prosecutors say Parks prevented the woman from seeking medical attention until she promised not to tell what had happened. She was eventually diagnosed with a collapsed lung and broken ribs. Sentencing is scheduled for February. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Parks could face a sentence of more than 99 years.
