Man killed for pastrami sandwich laughter

Man laughed when meat fell out of sandwich

TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) -  

A Southern California man has been convicted for killing a New Jersey businessman who laughed at him when pastrami fell out of his sandwich at a doughnut shop.
 
The prosecutor says 26-year-old Gardena resident Ronald Eugene Murray II punched and kicked 56-year-old Mun Jang while they were eating in the Donut King in October 2011.
 
Murray had taken a bite out of his pastrami sandwich and some of the meat fell out. Jang laughed and Murray became enraged and attacked him.
 
The Daily Breeze in Torrance says a jury on Monday found Murray guilty of voluntary manslaughter.
 
He was found not guilty of second-degree murder, which could have led to 15 years to life in prison.
 
Murray now faces up to 11 years when he's sentenced on March 4.
