MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- A Stilwell man faces up to 20 years in prison in a case that began over a bowl of cold chili.

Billy Ray Flynn has been convicted in federal court in Muskogee of assault with intent to kill a woman because she served him cold chili.

Prosecutors say Flynn first threw the chili in the woman's face, then stabbed her in the chest with an ax as she tried to escape the home.
