Son accused of shooting, killing dad in argument

SIGOURNEY, Iowa (AP) -- A southeast Iowa man has been charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of his father early Thursday.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Safety, 61-year-old Kenneth W. Lundy of rural Sigourney and his son, 32-year-old Kenneth E. Lundy, got into a heated argument over money.

The argument escalated and both men retrieved firearms. Authorities say Kenneth E. Lundy shot his father, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kenneth E. Lundy was arrested and is currently being held in the Keokuk County jail, pending an initial appearance before a district judge.

State Medical Examiner's Office plans to perform an autopsy later this week.
