A Kimberley man accused of killing his 1-year-old son will appear in the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court on Today.
Sylvester Modise, 27, was arrested on 12 January after the burnt remains of his son were found in a trench in Galeshewe, Kimberley.
Police suspected Modise reported him missing the day after the murder in an attempt to mislead them.
The toddler’s mother raised suspicions after she told police she did not believe Modise’s story about the boy going missing, Lieutenant Olebogeng Tawana said at the time.
He said the burnt body was found wrapped in a towel.
