Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma -

Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma deputies say a man killed his stepfather by giving him what's known as an 'atomic wedgie'. 

It's a bizarre case that has a McLoud man behind bars right now, accused of murder.

The crime happened inside a trailer. Folks in the neighborhood call the killing very odd.

According to court papers, 33-year-old Brad Lee Davis admitted to pulling Denver St. Clair's underwear over his back and head, allowing the elastic band to wrap around his neck.  The former marine then called 911 himself when he saw St. Clair had stopped breathing.

Davis and St. Clair got into a fight after St. Clair insulted his mother.

According to the coroner, St. Clair died from asphyxia and blunt force trauma. Davis reportedly planned to assault his stepfather, but didn't mean to kill him.

Both men were reportedly drunk at the time.  Investigators think St. Clair was unconscious at the time of the wedgie.

At last check, Davis was being held without bond. Attempts to contact his attorney have gone unanswered. 

Denver St. Clair was 58-years-old. He leaves behind a wife and at least one stepson.
