As police questioned a man about his grandfather’s death, the suspect removed two human ears from his pocket.
Police questioned Kolby Parker, 30, about the murder of his grandfather, Ronal Wells, Sr., 77. Wells was found stabbed to death Saturday evening on the front porch, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Parker initially told authorities he was attacked by his grandfather while they smoked marijuana together. He said that Wells attacked him with a knife, so he disarmed him and used the knife against him.
Parker pulled the ears from his pants pocket during his interrogation, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
He then lunged at the deputy and tried to grab their taser and firearm. Three deputies were punched, kicked or headbutted during the incident.
Parker later admitted to cutting off the ears. According to the Orlando Sentinel, he told deputies that he wanted his grandfather to be with his deceased grandmother and that it was “his time to go.”
Parker said he hit Wells multiple times in the head with a baseball bat, then stabbed him many times with a butcher knife.
Police charge Parker with second-degree murder, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting with violence. He is being held in Lake County jail without bond.
