Man gets 23 years for stabbing in Cheetos dispute

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 51-year-old St. Louis man has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for fatally stabbing a homeless man in a dispute over a bag of Cheetos.

David Lynn Scott pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder. KSDK-TV (http://on.ksdk.com/1cIiRsq ) reports that he was sentenced Thursday.

The crime happened in September 2012. Authorities say the victim, 42-year-old Roger Wilkes, and Scott argued over the bag of snacks at a light rail station near the St. Louis convention center.
