Johannesburg - The parents of a Hazyview teenager have turned in their son for the murder of a 43-year-old man, Mpumalanga police said on Thursday.

"They handed him over after police went looking for the boy at their house several times," said Colonel Leonard Hlathi.

The teenager and two other men allegedly tied up Lodrick Foxon, 43, and his wife, and ransacked the couple's house last week.

Foxon freed himself and grabbed one of the robbers, but was shot dead.

Hlathi said the teenager faced charges of murder and house robbery and would appear in the White River Magistrate's Court on Friday.

The other two men, Silindile Mokoena and Jonathan Terry, both aged 20, appeared in court on Thursday.

Police said the matter was postponed to April 26 for further investigation.

They remained in custody.
