JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Jefferson Parish authorities say a murder suspect is back in Louisiana to face charges that he killed his dad and stabbed his mother over food.

Authorities began processing Ronald Pritchett, 32, Monday evening.

Deputies say on November 25, 2015 they were called to the 800 block of Bellemeade Boulevard in unincorporated Gretna. Authorities say they found the suspect's father, Percival Pritchett, 58, and his wife, Renta Pritchett, 57, suffering from stab wounds.  Percival Pritchett died at the hospital. Renta Pritchett's injuries were said to be non-life threatening.

Investigators say the suspect became angry at his parents when he realized they had ordered food and didn't get any food for him. 

Ronald Pritchett allegedly fled the home after the stabbings in his father's 1997 Chevrolet Suburban. He was arrested in Purvis, Mississippi on Thanksgiving Day.
 
Investigators say Ronald Pritchett is being booked with one count of 1st degree murder, one count of attempted 1st degree murder and one count of auto theft.
