NEW ORLEANS – Authorities say a man has been charged in Louisiana with killing his father and stabbing his mother because they ordered fast food and didn't get any for him.
John Fortunato, a sheriff's spokesman in Jefferson Parish, says 32-year-old Ronald Pritchett faces charges of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and auto theft.
In Mississippi, Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel (REE-guhl) says Pritchett was arrested Thursday at a relative's home near the town of Purvis and has waived extradition to Louisiana.
Fortunato says 58-year-old Percival Pritchett and his wife, 57-year-old Renta Pritchett, were stabbed Wednesday at their home in unincorporated Gretna.
University Medical Center spokeswoman Aleis Tusa says Renta Pritchett was released after treatment.
