A man accused of murdering his five-year-old son appeared in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

The case against Boitumelo Seoposengwe was postponed to January 12 to give him time to apply for legal aid, Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said.

He remains behind bars.

The 29-year-old father allegedly hanged his son Remoratile Sehemo in Maphietsile village, near Taung, on December 24.

Police alleged that he locked himself and his son in a back room at his grandmother's home.

"A few minutes later one of the children went to knock at the room where the suspect and his son were.

"Seemingly, there was no response and family members were alerted. It is alleged that they peeped through the window and saw the boy hanging from the roof rafters," Mokgwabone said at the time.

Seoposengwe ran away, but later returned and handed himself over to police on the scene.
