ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A 28-year-old construction worker has been arrested after fleeing a work site following a deadly fight with his employer.

Orange County Sheriff's officials say Mason Toney was captured Monday night. The fight happened on Monday morning at a work site along Florida's Turnpike near Orlando.

Twenty-eight-year-old William Steven Knight died at the scene after he was stabbed.

Sheriff's officials say they don't yet know what the pair had been fighting about.

The investigation caused a huge traffic snarl in the Orlando area on Monday morning.
