A man has been charged with killing a man he fought with after drinking during a card game in Laurens.

Police say the men had been drinking heavily while playing cards Tuesday night and then got into a fight.

Officers responding to a report of someone lying in the front yard of a home Wednesday morning found 31-year-old Travis Fitzgerald Shumate dead. An autopsy Thursday showed that Shumate died from blows to the head.

Investigators say Shumate had been playing cards and drinking with 54-year-old Tommy Lee Simmons, who has been charged with murder.

It was unclear if Simmons has an attorney.
