A Kings Park man has been accused of killing his 82-year-old grandmother during an argument at the home they share.

Suffolk County police arrested 25-year-old Clarence Newcomb and charged him with first-degree manslaughter.

Police said he assaulted his grandmother, Kathleen Newcomb, early Friday morning at their Berg Avenue home.

Officers had responded to a 911 call of a woman lying on the floor at the house where they found the victim dead, police said.

Newcomb was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital for evaluation, postponing his arraignment at First District Court in Central Islip.
