Default ARTICLE: Man gets 14-year prison sentence for fatal stabbing

A Tucson man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for a fatal stabbing.

Robert Carrizosa, 39, pleaded guilty in April to manslaughter in the death of Carlos Lopez Castro.

He was sentenced Monday in Pima County Superior Court and a judge ordered him to pay Lopez's family more than $6,000 in restitution.

Authorities believe that Carrizosa and Lopez met with each other to do a drug deal sometime in late April or early May 1999.

Lopez was stabbed to death during the meeting and Carrizosa buried the body with the help of another man near Interstate 10 and the Santa Cruz River, according to authorities.

Lopez's body wasn't found until January 2004. Acting on tips, police arrested Carrizosa in April 2004 and charged him with murder.

Carrizosa claimed Lopez fired two shots at him from close range and he grabbed an ice pick for defense, but prosecutors said the wounds Lopez suffered weren't consistent with Carrizosa's story.
