A 46-year-old Wilkes County man was shot to death around 1:00 yesterday morning.


Monte Mitchell of the Winston-Salem Journal reports authorities believe 25-year-old Courtney Neil Scott shot William Eugene Sprinkle with a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol after a money dispute.

Both men have served time in prison in recent years.  Scott was convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon in 2002 and Sprinkle had a long criminal record including assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon.

Scott is reportedly being held in the Wilkes County Jail without bond.
