CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - A man who stabbed his mother to death during a drug-fueled argument at a Littleton home has been sentenced to 32 years in prison.

The Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday that 33-year-old Darin Allen Ninneman was sentenced for the May 5, 2012, death of 52-year-old Lorri Denice Ninneman. Darin Ninneman pleaded guilty in August to second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say he was homeless after a rehabilitation facility kicked him out, and the argument with his mother began when he sought out drugs. Ninneman is accused of stabbing his mother 29 times with an 8-inch fishing knife before fleeing.

Investigators say he was high on methamphetamines at the time of the murder.
