PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man who fatally shot another man after they argued at a northern New Jersey restaurant has been sentenced to 42 years in state prison.

A Union County jury had convicted Malcolm Bradley last November on murder and criminal restraint charges and a weapons offense.

Prosecutors say the shooting occurred in Plainfield in March 2011. But they haven’t said what sparked the dispute between the 27-year-old Edison man and the victim, 31-year-old Plainfield resident Curtis Stroud.

Shortly after the argument concluded, Bradley followed Stroud to a nearby intersection and shot him while he sat in the back seat of a friend’s car. Stroud’s friends took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short later.
