A man was sentenced Sept. 11 to 113 years to life in state prison for fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend in the head at a Pacoima residence, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
On June 20, Michael Jerome Parks, 48, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of G’Teasha Elayne Fisher, 33. The special allegation was also found true that Park used a knife and handgun to commit the crime.
On Sept. 7, 2016, Parks strangled, stabbed, then fatally shot Fisher after convincing her to meet at his uncle’s home in Pacoima, prosecutors said. Parks then fled and was arrested the next day in Las Vegas.
Parks has convictions dating back to 1985, including for robbery, possession of cocaine for sale, and assault with a firearm.
