KINGS PARK - The Kings Park man charged with killing his grandmother will not appear in court today.

There is no word on why this morning’s court hearing for Clarence Newcomb was postponed. 

Newcomb is facing manslaughter charges after allegedly killing his 82-year-old grandma during an argument over what to watch on TV. 

Neighbors say Newcomb is bi-polar and had a reaction to medication for migraines. 

Newcomb was sent for a mental evaluation after his arrest last Friday.
