GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- A Grandview man has been charged with second degree murder in connection to the death of his 74-year-old father.

According to court documents 44-year-old Kyle Webb told investigators he and his father, Franklin Webb, had gotten into an argument over a leaking pipe at their residence in the 7800 block of 129th Terrace in Grandview on Saturday night.

Webb told police his father fell and he laid on top of him until he lost consciousness. Court documents reveal that Webb told investigators that he was trying to "prove a point" that he could physically control him.

Webb told investigators that he waited a few minutes before calling 911.

"I don't know if l killed him or not and quite frankly it's on me," Webb told police, according to court documents. "I could have walked away easily. Most of this is on me. I want to take responsibility. I had to prove how big and bad I was. It's really all on me."

His father was found unconscious and was transported to the hospital where he later died.

The 44-year-old is being held on a $100,000 bond. He told prosecutors that he wrestled for one year in college and was a brown belt in Judo.

Investigators say that it does not appear that any weapons were used in the death.
