Sex offender faces life in Wisconsin triple slaying

MADISON (AP) -- A Janesville sex offender faces life in prison in a grisly triple homicide.

A jury found James Koepp guilty in February of stabbing and strangling Danyetta Lentz and her two children in the family's mobile home in 2007. Prosecutors believe Koepp had an affair with Lentz and killed her to keep her from talking about it.

Koepp is set to be sentenced Tuesday afternoon. He faces three mandatory life terms. The only question is whether Rock County Circuit Judge Alan R. Bates will decide he's eligible for parole.

Koepp was convicted in 1983 of sexually assaulting two women at a substance abuse center.
