His father must have said or done something he considered un-Islamic.

“Lyon: a 60-year-old man beheaded, his son arrested,” translated from “Lyon : un homme de 60 ans décapité, son fils arrêté,” La Provence, August 14, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):
A 60-year-old was beheaded with a knife on the night of Saturday to Sunday in Saint-Priest, in the Lyon area and his 25-year-old son, arrested at the scene, was arrested, we learned on Sunday from reliable sources.
The first elements of the investigation into this “murder by decapitation” show that the man in police custody “killed his 60-year-old father with a kitchen knife,” the Lyon prosecutor’s office told the AFP. During the night, “around 2 a.m., the municipal police alert the national police to the discovery of a decapitated body in a parking lot. The municipal police report that a man is walking around with a head in one hand and a knife in his other,” according to a source familiar with the matter.
Police officers from the BAC, who arrived as reinforcements, managed to arrest this man “who tried to stab them, without hurting them,” according to the same source. The suspect, a Moroccan in a regular situation, is known “for facts of common law, family disputes on matters of alcohol and narcotics,” according to this same source.
The man who was taken into custody is not known for acts of radicalism, according to the same source. The investigation entrusted to the Rhône Departmental Security “should determine the exact circumstances of this tragedy as well as its motive and deepen the personality of its author,” according to the Lyon prosecutor’s office.
“Decapitation in Saint-Priest: the suspect walked around with the victim’s head in one hand,” translated from “Décapitation à Saint-Priest: le suspect déambulait avec la tête de la victime dans une main,” Le Progrès, August 14, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):
It was around 2 a.m., on the night of Saturday to Sunday, that the first calls arrived at “17” to report that an individual armed with a knife was pursuing another man on rue Louis-Braille in Saint-Priest.
A few minutes later, a municipal police crew discovered a decapitated body in the parking lot located at number 40 of this street. The murder weapon, a kitchen knife, was also found next to the body of the victim, a 60-year-old man.
The suspect arrested in a park near the scene of the crime
Shortly after the macabre discovery, and while the municipal police reported “that a man is walking around with a head in one hand and a knife in the other,” a crew from the BAC (Anti-Crime Squad) spotted the alleged murderer not far from there, in the Louis-Braille park, located at number 33 of the street.
Making incomprehensible remarks, the man refused to surrender, trying several times to hit the police, without success.
The alleged murderer allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar”
According to information from Progress, the alleged murderer also shouted “Allah Akbar” at the time of this eventful arrest.
He was taken into custody. The 25-year-old is the victim’s son. The two men lived in the same home in Saint-Priest.
The Lyon prosecutor’s office confirmed to Le Progrès that the first findings “establish the reality of a murder by decapitation.” The investigation, entrusted to the Rhône Departmental Security, “will have to determine the exact circumstances of this tragedy as well as its motive and deepen the personality of its author,” specifies the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
The suspect, a Moroccan in a regular situation, is known “for facts of common law, family disputes on the background of alcohol and narcotics”, according to AFP. He is not known for acts of radicalism.
