LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- A Moscow man serving at least 20 years in prison for his role in the death of his wife and unborn child wants to withdraw his guilty pleas in the case.
 
The Lewiston Tribune reports that Silas B. Parks filed a motion in 2nd District Court last week to have his plea agreement tossed out.
 
Parks originally faced two counts of murder, but he pleaded guilty to two counts of voluntary manslaughter and one count of first-degree arson in 2010 as part of an agreement. 
 
Parks was 25 years old when prosecutors say he strangled or suffocated a pregnant Sarah Parks. 
 
Prosecutors say Silas Parks, and then set fire to their Moscow home. An autopsy found that Sarah Parks was dead when the fire started.
