BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A man who spent 20 years in an Idaho prison, including 14 years on death row, for murder before being exonerated is facing new charges.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2xIl4TG ) Donald Manuel Paradis was arrested Tuesday for aggravated assault.

The victim told police he was in an argument with Paradis inside the suspect’s Boise home, culminating in Paradis pulling out a gun and pressing to the back of the victim’s head.

Lawyers for Paradis painted a different picture, saying the victim - a homeless man Paradis had allowed to stay with him for several weeks - was intoxicated at the time and had become belligerent and threatening.

A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 18. If convicted of aggravated assault, Paradis could face up to five years in prison.
