ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minneapolis man has been sentenced to 41 years in prison for fatally shooting a St. Paul bar owner over a $20 pool table fee.

Twenty-three-year-old Cheng Vang pleaded guilty in February to second-degree murder for killing 45-year-old Vone Moua at Malina's Sports Bar. Vang also shot and wounded two other men at the bar.

Vang returned to the bar early on June 9 after his brother-in-law, 27-year-old Yia Her, called him for help and asked him to bring a gun.

Her had paid $20 to use a pool table, but wasn't able to get $20 worth of playing time in by the time the bar closed.

The Star Tribune ( reports Her was convicted by a jury in March for his role in Moua's death and awaits sentencing.
