Man shot uncle to death over pork steaks

ST. LOUIS, Missouri – John Cunningham (Picture) of Jennings used a shotgun to settle a fight with his uncle over pork steaks, police say.

Cunningham, 43, of the 2000 block of Wedgewood Drive in Jennings, was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Lessie E. Lowe, 44, the maternal uncle of Cunningham, police say.

The shooting stemmed from an argument between Lowe and Cunningham over whether the cuts of meat they were planning to cook were pork steaks or pork chops, police say.

Cunningham said they were pork steaks, police said. Lowe disagreed.

After the argument became physical, the two had to be separated by someone else in the home, police say.

Cunningham went to another part of the home, grabbed a shotgun and shot Lowe, police said.  More
