It’s Thanksgiving day, and while most people are gathering around loved ones in collective anticipation fordelicious home-cooked meals…one Mississippi man got so irate at his parents over forgetting to get him some fast food that he went so far as to brutally attack them with a knife.
Yahoo: Authorities say a man could face charges in Louisiana after being accused 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. John Fortunato, spokesman for the sheriff there.
Percival Pritchett, 58, and his wife, Renitta Pritchett, 57, were stabbed Wednesday at their home in unincorporated Gretna. Renitta Pritchett was treated and released, University Medical Center spokeswoman Aleis Tusa said.
Fortunato said in a news release that Pritchett became enraged about food. Asked by email for more details, he replied, “They ordered food from a fast food restaurant and didn’t include him.”
Fortunato said other relatives told investigators that Pritchett became enraged about the food, grabbed a knife and went upstairs to confront his parents. They had locked their bedroom door against him, but he allegedly kicked it open and began stabbing them, Fortunato said.He said both parents were stabbed multiple times, Percival Pritchett in the chest and Renitta Pritchett in the head.
