ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Deputies in Florida say a worker fatally stabbed his Trump-supporting boss at a highway construction site and placed an American flag next to the body after they got into an argument.
Mason Toney was charged with first-degree murder for the killing of William Knight on Monday.
Co-workers told investigators with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office that Toney and Knight were friends despite their political differences.
The arrest affidavit says co-workers described Knight as “pro-Donald Trump,” while co-workers described Toney as “anti-government.”
An arrest affidavit says Toney jumped in a truck and took off after the stabbing. He was apprehended several hours later.
