Worker accused of burying boss in dirt with front-end loader

DEBARY, Fla. –  A construction in Florida worker has been arrested after authorities say he buried his boss in dirt using a front-end loader.

Citing an arrest report, the Orlando Sentinel reports 32-year-old Erick Cox of Sanford was charged Wednesday with aggravated battery.

Witnesses say Cox was arguing with 57-year-old Perry Byrd of Orlando at a construction site in DeBary when Cox dumped two loads of dirt onto Byrd, pinning him to the ground.

The report says Cox then began hitting Byrd in the head with a 6-foot aluminum level. Byrd was knocked unconscious and suffered a large cut.
