NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say a man used a machete to hack another man to death.

Police say he was then arrested when he reported to work at his job at a local country club. The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reports that 59-year-old Don Woods faces a second-degree murder charge following his arrest when he arrived for work at the Metairie Country Club last week.

Investigators say they recovered a video that showed Woods get out of his car and fight with a man in the Treme neighborhood April 21. Court records state that Woods began striking the man with a machete and drove away with the weapon.
