Johannesburg - The bail application of two men accused of murdering a child was set for 2 August in the Hillbrow Magistrate's Court, said police on Friday.

Denver Marrington, the father of the dead child, and his friend Dinold Van Wyk appeared in court on Thursday.

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the bruised 1-year-old died on Monday while being attended to by a doctor at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in Johannesburg.

"The father of the child and his friend alleged the child [was injured after he] fell from a couch. Police are still questioning the mother," said Dlamini.

The two men remained in custody.
