18 year old Jordan Ryan from Heys Close in Blackburn has appeared in court today charged with killing his dad and trying to kill his mum.
Police were called out to the family home back in October and discovered 46 year old Neil Ryan dead at the scene from a single stab wound.
His wife Debbie was found with stab injuries and is now recovering.
Ryan was arrested at the nearby home of his grandparents shortly after the incident and has since been detained under the Mental Health Act but was charged and appeared in court on Wednesday.
A spokeswoman for Lancashire Constabulary said: ``Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service a man has been charged with the murder of his father and attempted murder of his mother.
Jordan Ryan will face a plea and case management hearing in Preston on June 18th.
