SPOKANE — A man who beat his 60-year-old mother unconscious and left her without medical care for hours could not win a new trial Thursday from the state Court of Appeals.

Daniel Farias, 30, of East Wenatchee was sentenced in 2012 to 20 years in prison for drunkenly attacking his mother in the dead of night, beating her with a wall-mounted crucifix. In his appeal, Farias said he was not allowed to ask the jury to consider whether he was too drunk to form an intent to harm his mother — a key element in many criminal convictions.
