A Tempe man accused of fatally stabbing his stepfather and wounding his mother last year has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Blake Holten was sentenced Friday for second-degree murder.

The 28-year-old Holton originally was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault against an officer and multiple counts of kidnapping following the March 2016 attack.

Authorities say 46-year-old Donovan Arneson, of Iowa, died from his injuries at a hospital.

Holten's mother was treated at a hospital for multiple stab wounds.
