PALMER, Alaska - A man who killed his father with a machete and attacked his father's fiancee was given a 189-year sentence for murder and attempted murder.

Christopher Erin Rogers Jr. apologized at Monday's sentencing in a Palmer court.

KTUU reports the woman who barely survived the 2007 attack, Elan Moren, also spoke in court and asked the judge to "keep this monster behind bars forever."

The machete attack was the first part of a spree in which Rodgers also shot three strangers in Anchorage, killing one and wounding two. He was given a 309-year sentence in November for those murder and attempted murder convictions.

He has a combined sentence of 498 years.
