Sentencing in State v. Louis Chen: A 44-year-old man was sentenced this afternoon to 49 years in prison for the fatal stabbings of his partner and their two-year-old son in Seattle in 2011. The defendant, Dr. Louis C. Chen, pled guilty in February to charges of Murder in the Second Degree for the murder of his partner, Eric Cooper, and Murder in the First Degree for the murder of their two-year-old son Cooper Chen at their apartment in Seattle's First Hill neighborhood on August 11, 2011. Each charge included a deadly weapon enhancement. The defendant faced a sentence range of 34 to 49 years in prison, which included the deadly weapon enhancements. Prosecutors recommended a top of the range sentence of 49 years. He was sentenced before Judge William Bowman. The case was handled by Senior Deputy Prosecutors Don Raz and Mary Barbosa.
