A teenager from Aurora, Colo. has been charged with first-degree murder for the death of his stepfather after he admitted to murdering him and posting his final moments of life on Snapchat.
The Denver Post reports, Nickolas Vinson, 19 murdered his stepfather Oscar Lemar Owensby, 50, at their home in Aurora, Colorado, on Friday night.
Police say he lashed out and stabbed Owensby with a seven-inch blade following an argument that allegedly began with the man asking his stepson to do more chores and contribute to household expenses.
He reportedly stabbed him several times in the neck, back and chest, before posting a video to Snapchat to brag about the murder, as his mother Celena Vinson screamed in horror.
“Hey guys I just killed him. I just killed him. I just killed him,” Vinson could be heard said. “Lemar, can you hear me? Can you hear me?
No!,” his mother screamed. Vinson told police he killed his stepfather because he “wanted to throw him out of the house.”
Police found Vinson leaving the home. He reportedly wanted to tell his friends goodbye and that he’d be “going away for a long time.” When he stepped out the car, he was covered in blood.
Vinson is currently being held without bond at the Arapahoe County Jail, on a single first-degree murder charge. and is expected in court today.
