A guy in Oklahoma who could have maybe used some anger management classes will be spending up to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the death of his stepfather.

From NewsOK:

Brad Lee Davis, 34, admitted he killed his stepfather on Dec. 21, 2013, “in the heat of passion while defending myself in a fight that got out of hand and went too far.”

The victim, Denver Lee St. Clair, 58, died when the elastic band of his torn, blue underwear was pulled over his head and ended up tightly against the front of his neck, cutting off his air, the doctor who did the autopsy reported.

Apparently it was important to note the color of St. Clair's fatal underwear.

Testimony from a preliminary hearing indicated that Davis told an investigator that "he gave his stepfather an atomic wedgie after he knocked his stepfather out and the fight was over," NewsOK reports.

However, 10 days later Davis told another investigator "he gave his stepfather the wedgie while they were fighting and then he knocked his stepfather out," according to NewsOK.

Either way, it's hard to figure how the underwear could be stretched that far without ripping. It appears Davis soon will have plenty of time to ponder this mystery.
