POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Okla. (CBS Houston) – A local man is facing a murder charge after reportedly killing his stepfather by giving him an “atomic wedgie.”

The man, identified by KJRH 2 as 33-year-old Brad Davis, reportedly suffocated his stepfather to death after the two got into an argument in the days leading up to Christmas.

During the fight, 58-year-old Denver Lee St. Clair, reportedly spoke “ill of Davis’ mother,” then “swung first,” turning the verbal altercation into a physical one.

Davis claims this is when he fought back, giving St. Clair an “atomic wedgie” in what he claims was self-defense.

Ultimately, this caused his stepfather to die by “asphyxiation caused by the elastic underwear band being stretched over his head and left around his neck,” the station learned.

The death was ruled a homicide, and Davis was booked at the Pottawatomie County prison, NewsOK is reporting. He is said to be facing a charge of first-degree murder.

NewsOK additionally learned that St. Clair and Davis’ mother, Tressia St. Clair, had entered divorce proceedings more than once.
