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.  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 MetroLink station near the St. Louis convention center.
