Charges: Dad Killed Son Over Cable TV Dispute
ST. PAUL (AP) — Prosecutors allege an 84-year-old Maplewood man fatally shot his son in a dispute about installing cable in the family home.
Pang Se Vang is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his 36-year-old son, Chue Vang.
Police were called to the home Monday. Officers found Chue Vang dead in a hallway and Pang Vang bleeding from self-inflicted knife wounds.
According to the complaint, Pang Vang called his pastor that morning and said he was upset that Chue Vang would not pay to install cable in the home.
Charges say Chue Vang opened the bedroom door, said, "Dad!" and was shot once by his father.
Pang Vang surrendered to police after telling them he would settle the dispute with his dead son in the afterlife.
