The 34-year-old Oklahoma man was convicted of manslaughter.

Brad Lee Davis killed his stepfather last January when he managed to suffocate him inside his own underwear while performing the wedgie. Davis just pleaded guilty to the charges, but it reportedly could have been much worse for him—prosecutors originally tried to pursue first-degree murder charges.

Although there was some (scant) evidence to support the necessary intent—Davis and his stepfather reportedly had a contentious relationship and he “texted a friend that night he was fixing to mess Denver up and later texted he had nothing to lose”—he eventually pleaded out before trial.

But even with the deal, Davis will likely to spend some real time in prison: prosecutors tell News OK they’re asking for a 35-year sentence—well over the four-year minimum for involuntary manslaughter convictions in Oklahoma.

    “managed to suffocate him inside his own underwear while performing the wedgie”…I’m one of those girls that aren’t getting this. How does one suffocate someone inside his own underwear and what the hell is a wedgie and how does one perform a wedgie?? Is this some of that guy stuff?

      The Atomic Wedgie entails hoisting the waistband of the receiver’s underwear up and over their head.

          In high school I guess the smarter sex girls didn’t bully by pulling pantyhose over the heads of their frenemies? Women are to classy:)

        I wonder if this is the first time anyone has been killed by an Atomic Wedgie???

        is this a “record”?

          Breaking this Atomic Wedgie record requires a twofer!

    It appears to me that this man may have solved Oklahoma’s lethal injection problem.
