Father, son sentenced in Upper Land Park stabbing death

A father and son who pleaded no contest to killing a man three years ago were sentenced today in Sacramento Superior Court.

Christopher William Koppe, 56, received a 16-to-life term from Judge Steve White for his second-degree murder plea in the Feb. 8, 2010, stabbing death of Keenan Jon Slotty, 24, in a residence in the 2700 block of Muir Way in Upper Land Park.

Nicholas Tyler Koppe, 27, received 33 years for manslaughter in the killing that authorities say resulted from an argument among alcohol and methamphetamine abusers. He had the higher term because of a prior strike that resulted in the doubling of his sentence, authorities said.
