A Missouri man shot and killed his uncle in an apparent dispute over some pork, police said.
John Cunningham, 43, of Jennings, Mo., near St. Louis, used a shotgun to kill Lessie E. Lowe, 44. Police said the two began arguing early Monday over the proper term for the pork — Cunningham said they were pork steaks, Lowe disagreed calling them pork chops.
The dispute became physical and the two men were separated, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Cunningham, who police noted had been correct about the pork steaks, went to another part of the home, grabbed the shotgun and blasted his uncle, fatally wounding Lowe, officials said.
Cunningham was charged with first-degree murder.
