FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- The Alaska Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of a Fairbanks man who stabbed and choked a woman at a North Pole restaurant.
David Sun Do Hesch is serving a 40-year prison sentence for first-degree assault and kidnapping in an attack on Polly Andrews.
The 35-year-old Hesch met Andrews in July 2005. The night they met, they also picked up Hesch's friend, Turhan Ray, and reportedly used cocaine.
