[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Appearing the victor of a deadly battle, one spider tugs on the body of another. You can see that the living spider is missing an appendage - perhaps that's it still clamped in the fangs of the dead spider?

Although this is a common species in southeastern North Carolina, I don't know it's identification. Any ideas?

It's an interesting, dramatic scene, but unfortunately the picture not sufficiently sharp to be really striking.
As far as I can see, they are both the same species of Sack-spider, family clubionidae, Clubiona or Elaver sp., I think
