ORLANDO, Fla. - A 23-year-old former Walmart employee accused of fatally stabbing his former boss will appear in court Monday, records show.
Prosecutors say Caswayne Williams, of Winter Park, got into a fight with a manager at the Neighborhood Walmart on Lee Road in Orange County in March, fatally stabbing him.
He is facing first-degree murder charges.

Williams was arrested in March a mile from the Walmart after investigators said he killed Davon Brown, 25, outside the store's gas station.
Deputies said there was a struggle between the two that spilled out into the store’s parking lot.
“There has to have been some connection as to the place of employment,” Orange County Deputy Rose Silva said. “Investigators are looking into that right now.”
A store employee who knows both men told Channel 9 that the news of Brown’s death was surprising, because Williams is a “talkative and outgoing” person.

Sabrina Jones, Brown’s aunt, told Channel 9 that the men had an argument last week, but she didn’t specify what started it.
“The entire Walmart family is saddened by this tragic loss,” a company spokesman said in a statement. “This was a senseless crime. Right now, our thoughts and prayers are with the family of our associate.”
