MCCLOUD, OK (KFOR/CNN) - A former marine is accused of killing his stepfather.
The way police say he killed him has left many absolutely speechless.
Brad Davis, 33, is under arrest for taking a high school prank to a deadly level. Investigators say Davis and his 58-year-old stepfather, Denver St. Clair, were drinking together inside the family home a few days before Christmas. According to the police affidavit, tempers flared when "St. Clair began speaking ill of Davis' mother" and a fight broke out.
Davis claims his stepfather swung first, but the domestic dispute intensified when Davis knocked his stepfather unconscious, grabbed his underwear and gave him an "atomic wedgie."
"His underwear was pulled up over his head and the elastic band was around his throat," Lt. Jimmy Brewer of Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office said.
The medical examiner reports the cause of death was a combination of blunt force trauma and asphyxiation.
"And with the blunt force trauma, that's a whole other issue, too. One of the two, either or, it was bad," Brewer said.
After the fight, Davis called 911 to report what happened, but police believe he tampered with the crime scene to make it look like he killed St. Clair in self-defense.
