Son stabs father to death and wounds mother over Thanksgiving takeaway

Ronald Pritchett age 32, was visiting his family in Gretna, Louisiana, on Thanksgiving Eve.

‘They ordered food from a fast food restaurant and didn’t include him,’ said John Fortunato, a spokesman for the police in Jefferson Parish.

His parents had to lock themselves in the bathroom, however he quickly kicked the door down.

Pritchett grabbed a knife and stabbed his father Percival, 58, in the chest multiple times to death. He then turned on his mother Renta, 57, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The couple’s eldest son, Percival Pritchett, Jr, said: ‘Nobody expects this type of thing to happen to their family.

‘When somebody takes your daddy’s life, completely short, from the way it’s supposed to be, then you’re not prepared for that. He’s not prepared for that because that’s not how it was supposed to end.’

Ronald Pritchett was arrested early on Thursday morning and faces murder charges.
