Harvey stabbed Toler, 36, in the upper chest, authorities said. Toler was pronounced dead at the scene.

Harvey was in the Edgecombe County jail Wednesday morning being held without bond.

    It would seem that Mr. Toler should have left the property when ordered to do so. However, Mr. Harvey probably should have called police to have Mr. Toler removed from his property. The knife would only be warranted if Mr. Toler tried to force his way into Mr. Harleys residence.
