KINGS PARK, N.Y. (January 3, 2012)—A New York man killed his grandmother after the two argued over which TV show to watch, police said Friday.
Authorities said Clarence Newcomb, 25, was arrested Friday at the home he shared with his grandmother, Kathleen Newcomb, 82, in Kings Park, on Long Island 40 miles east of New York City.
Suffolk County police say a man called them at about 4:35 a.m. to report the woman was lying on the floor. Officers say they found her dead. Medical officials haven't determined how she died.
No weapons were recovered.
Clarence Newcomb told investigators he and his grandmother had argued over what to watch on TV, police said.
Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick said he doesn't know which shows were involved.
Police say Newcomb is unemployed, and it's unclear if he has an attorney. He faces arraignment Saturday.
