BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) - An Elon man has been accused of killing his co-worker following a fight at a Burlington business.

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 41-year-old Michael Lavonne Paylor faces second-degree murder charges in the death of 61-year-old Eddie Leon Irvine, of Gibsonville.

Authorities say the two men got into an altercation Monday morning at Triangle Grading and Paving. Officers found Irvine lying on the ground, unresponsive. He died shortly after arriving at a hospital.

Paylor was taken into custody at the scene.

Officials have not released Irvine’s cause of death. They say no weapons were used during the fight.

Investigators have not said what prompted the clash.

It is unclear whether Paylor has an attorney.
