ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for killing his uncle during an argument over pork steaks.

John Cunningham was sentenced Friday in St. Louis Circuit Court, where he was convicted earlier of voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.

Police said the Jennings resident shot Lessie Lowe in September 2012 at the older man's home in St. Louis.

The shooting followed a dispute over whether the cuts of meat they were planning to cook were pork steaks or pork chops. Cunningham said they were pork steaks, but Lowe disagreed.

Police said they were pork steaks.
