Man murders father, stabs mother because they ordered fast food and didn’t get him any: cops.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Authorities say a man faces charges in Louisiana accusing him of killing his father and stabbing his mother because they ordered fast food and didn’t get any for him. Ronald Pritchett, 32, of Purvis, Mississippi, faces charges of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and auto theft in the New Orleans suburb of Jefferson Parish, said Col. In Mississippi, Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel says Pritchett was arrested Thursday at a relative’s home near the town of Purvis and has waived extradition to Louisiana.

Authorities said the suspect’s mother, 57-year-old Renta Pritchett, was found near the stairs on the first floor suffering from multiple stab wounds to her head. He said deputies checked several relatives’ homes before locating Percival Pritchett’s tan Chevrolet Suburban at a house where detectives were told Ronald Pritchett was in a “mother-in-law” outbuilding. Fortunato said other relatives told investigators that Pritchett became enraged about the food, grabbed a knife and went upstairs to confront his parents.
