Stepfather killed by 'atomic wedgie'

A Former US Marine has pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter for asphyxiating his stepfather with the underwear he was wearing in a move police dubbed an "atomic wedgie," court officials said this week.

Brad Davis (34), who pleaded guilty, faces between four to 35 years in prison for the death of Denver St. Clair (58), in 2013 in Oklahoma City. Sentencing is scheduled for July. Davis told police he carried out the prank after St Clair "jumped him" following a night of drinking.
