A 25-year-old man is in custody after allegedly stoning his father to death.
He was arrested yesterday afternoon.
Police spokesperson Captain Khephu Ndlovu said the murdered victim from Verulam, north of Durban, died in hospital yesterday.
"Apparently the two men had an argument on Monday and the son then allegedly began stoning his own father.
"His father died today (yesterday) at the hospital and police arrested the son," Ndlovu said.
The murder suspect is expected to appear in the Verulam magistrate's court today.
