LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - 7 News now knows what sparked the argument that got way out of control, eventually causing a stepson to allegedly fire on his stepfather. Police said it all started with a telephone call. Police believe Coby Ceaser is responsible for murdering his step father, Patrick Myles.

"They surrounded the house. They attempted to make contact with the person, who we believed was in the house. Subsequently, through those efforts he was arrested," said Sgt. Mark Kraus with Lake Charles Police.

According to police, the shooting occurred after an argument got out of control. Apparently, Patrick Myles, the step dad was upset his stepson, Coby Ceaser, was on the phone too much.

"He thought it was used a little excessive by the stepson. He corrected his stepson, and the stepson, for whatever reason, thought it was worth killing someone over," said Sgt. Kraus.

Now, a family must deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one.

"I'm still in denial now. I just can't believe my daddy is gone," said Patrick Myles' daughter, Patricia Myles.

"I just really miss him, because he was really fun loving and caring person. He would do anything for anybody else. I just miss him because we were real close," said Patrick Myles' Sister, Rhoda Myles.

Some of Patrick Myles' family has said they now realize life can be taken in an instant, and they warn other families to try and put any differences aside. You never know what might happen.

"If you have a loved one and y'all got into it, and arguing, make up with them immediately. Because, you never know when that person is just going to die. You don't know. It happened so fast," said Patricia Myles.
