CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- A Surfside Beach man has been sentenced 31 years in prison after being convicted of murder in the shooting death of another man almost two years ago.

The sentencing came Thursday after an Horry County jury convicted 28-year-old Kareem Shamel Harry of murder in the death of Kevin Bowen of Murrells Inlet.

Prosecutors said the shooting occurred in March of 2011 and resulted from an argument over a big-screen plasma television.
