An Oklahoma man pleaded guilty Monday to murdering his dad with an "atomic wedgie."

Brad Lee Davis, 34, admitted to killing Denver St. Clair, 58, in December 2013. He told the court
that he did it “in the heat of passion while defending myself in a fight that got out of hand and went too far,” reports.

When Davis was arrested, he told police the fight that ultimately killed St. Clair because the victim called him and his mother "worthless." St. Clair had filed for divorce from Davis' mother in September, according to

Davis said he knocked St. Clair unconscious and then pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck.

The Oklahoma Medical Examiner later determined asphyxiation and blunt force trauma as the causes of death.

Davis' murder trial was set to begin May 18. Instead, he pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter. The judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation and scheduled formal sentencing for July 16, according to the Shawnee News-Star.
