The suspect stabbed his father in the chest and his mother in the head was said to have gotten angry when he found out his parents had gotten food without him. Pritchett's parents had locked themselves in their bedroom to escape him but he allegedly kicked the door open and stabbed them several times.
Pritchett was later arrested near his hometown of Purvis, Miss. when police located his fathers car outside a relatives' house. “The suspect is facing charges for second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and auto theft” says sheriff spokesman Col. John Fortunato
