Suffolk County Police reported that a N.Y. man killed his elderly grandmother yesterday after an argument between the two over which TV show to watch got totally out of control.
Clarence Newcomb, 25, was arrested Friday at the home he shared with his 82-year-old grandmother, Kathleen Newcomb. Their home is located in Kings Park on New York's Long Island according to USA Today.
Police first learned about the incident when they received a call from a man yesterday at 4:35 a.m. to report that a woman was lying on the floor.
When police arrived on the scene, they discovered the deceased grandmother.
Medical personnel haven't yet determined the exact cause of death. No weapons were recovered from the home.
Police say 25-year-old Clarence Newcomb told them he and his grandmother had argued over what to watch on TV.
Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick says he doesn't know what shows were involved.
Police also stated that Mr. Newcomb is unemployed.
Clarence Newcomb is currently in the custody of the N.Y. Suffolk County Police.
Newcomb is scheduled for arraignment today.
