A Florida man is accused of killing his pro-Trump boss on a construction site where they worked. Toney allegedly killed his boss for supporting president Trump.
Mason Toney, 28, is in custody after allegedly stabbing his boss William Knight, 28, on Monday, January 20.
Knight, was a big Donald Trump supporter and it is believed this is why he was killed.
Deputies in Florida’s Orange County say they found Knight dead with a brand new American flag draped over the side of his body. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says the murder appears to be related to a political dispute between the two men.
The preliminary report determined the murder weapon was a trowel, a common tool used for bricklaying.
Police say there were a number of witnesses to the crime at a construction site just off the Florida turnpike.
The suspect left the scene in a white pick-up truck. He was taken into custody after crashing the truck in a brief pursuit in Brevard County.
He was charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held without bond in Orange County
