A West Rand man who allegedly killed his three-year-old stepson at the weekend is expected to appear in the Roodepoort magistrates' court today on a murder charge.

The 27-year-old man allegedly murdered his stepson on Saturday, Inspector Zelda Viviers said yesterday.

Viviers said the stepfather is believed to have told the child's mother that he had a present for her. Instead, she found her son's body in a field in Florida. - Sapa
