NEW ORLEANS - Authorities say a Mississippi man is accused in Louisiana of killing his father and stabbing his mother because they ordered fast food and didn't get any for him.

Jefferson Parish spokesman John Fortunato says 32-year-old Ronald Pritchett faces charges of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and auto theft.

Danny Rigel is sheriff for Lamar County, Mississippi. He 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 Renitta Pritchett, were stabbed Wednesday at their home in unincorporated Gretna. 

University Medical Center spokeswoman Aleis Tusa says Renitta Pritchett was released after treatment.
