Kolby Parker, 30, told deputies he and his grandfather, Ronald Wells, Sr., were smoking marijuana when there was a confrontation. Parker claims he was only acting in self-defense when the older man attacked him with a knife. He told deputies he managed to get the knife away and used it on Wells, who was found dead on the front porch with multiple stab wounds.

While he was being questioned by police, Parker allegedly pulled two human ears from his pant pockets, which were later discovered to be those of his grandfather, according to the police report.
