Oklahoma man pleads guilty in deadly ‘atomic wedgie’ case
An Oklahoma man 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 on Tuesday.
Brad Davis, 34, who pleaded guilty on Monday, faces between four to 35 years in prison for the death of Denver St. Clair, 58, in December 2013 in McLoud, east of Oklahoma City. A mitigation hearing is set for Wednesday with sentencing scheduled for July.
Davis pulled St. Clair’s underwear over his head and around his neck, where the elastic band left ligature marks, police said.
