MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis man is charged with killing his grandson in an argument that police say began because the younger man didn't have dinner done on time.

The media reports 63-year-old Harold Gray is charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of 31-year-old Anthony Morris.

According to a police report, Gray returned home from work on April 25 and got angry because Morris didn't have dinner ready. Police say the men argued and Gray told officers Morris hit him in the face twice.

Police say Morris went outside and Gray followed and stabbed him with a knife.

Gray is being held at the Shelby County jail, where online records did not list an attorney for him.
