# A 32-year-old man is expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court today, for allegedly poisoning and killing his girlfriend’s nine-year-old son. The man was tracked and arrested after the boy started sweating and vomiting excessively, and was taken to hospital last Saturday. On arrival at the hospital, medical professionals tried all they could, but the boy died. Police spokesperson, Mahlomola Kareli, says the substance used to poison the boy has yet to be determined. Police investigations into the matter continue.
