Evergreen resident Kenneth James Elmgreen, 54, has received the maximum sentence of 48 years in prison for killing his elderly and disabled father in July 2012.
During Elmgreen's sentencing hearing for second-degree murder last Friday, District Judge Christopher Munch also gave the defendant a concurrent six-year sentence for a related charge of attempted arson.
Added to that is an 18-month sentence on a separate probation revocation for a fraud-by-check conviction in 2010, bringing his total time in the Department of Corrections to 49 1/2 years.
