Deputies found a 77-year-old man, identified as Ronal [sic] Wells Sr., lying dead with stab wounds on the the front porch of the house.
Kolby Parker, 30, was also at the scene. Parker told deputies he lived at the house with his grandfather. Parker said the two men had been smoking marijuana together when a fight began. Parker said Wells attacked him with a knife, but he disarmed Wells and used it against him, according to the sheriff’s office.
Parker said he had stabbed Wells in the heart.
As he was interviewed at the scene, Parker asked a deputy “Do you want to know where Ronal Wells Jr. [sic] is?” Parker then took two human ears out of each of his pants pockets, “later discovered to be those of the decedent.” “This is where he is,” Parker told deputies, according to the arrest report.
Parker then asked the deputy, “Can I have your gun?” He then allegedly attacked the deputies, trying to disarm them, but he was secured and arrested. “An agency-issued Taser 7 was used but was not effective,” according to the arrest report.
Detectives who arrived to serve a search warrant on the property found a baseball bat on the porch with apparent bloodstains, and found a large butcher knife on the kitchen table inside, with blood dripping on the floor.
Sheriff’s deputies say Parker later confessed to hitting his grandfather in the head multiple times with the baseball bat, and confessed to stabbing his grandfather numerous times with the butcher knife, and cutting off the man’s ears.
