Eastern Idaho man gets prison for beating woman


IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) _ An Idaho Falls man convicted for
hitting a woman over the head with a rock this summer must serve at
least two years of a 15-year prison term.
Twenty-five-year-old Eric Van Shupp was sentenced in 7th
District Court Thursday for his unprovoked July 4 attack on Teresa
Prosecutors say they have not motive to explain Van Shupp's
actions. The day of the attack, investigators say Shupp was
following Storm as she was walking home. Shupp then grabbed a rock
and struck her with it when she reached the residence.
The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/qRb2LW ) Shupp was also
ordered to pay $1,000 fine.
Shupp told the judge his victim deserves justice and he deserves
to spend time in prison for his actions. He was convicted of
aggravated battery.
