TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif.—A Tehama County man is sentenced to six years in prison for trying to have his father murdered.

Andrew Kratz pleaded guilty in April to solicitation of murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors say he was arrested last October after pushing, punching, and choking his elderly father.

After his arrest from jail he tried to hire other inmates to kill his father and step mother.

He hatched a detailed plan for them to be buried on their property.

He said that the inmates could steal their personal property for payment.

Kratz is now headed to state prison.
