CAPE TOWN - A Delft mother says she never expected petty domestic disputes would result in her 14-month-old son's murder.

The father of Zondre Parks has been arrested for his murder and will reappear in court on Monday.

He was denied bail earlier this week at Bellville Magistrates Court.

The boy's mother Nadia said, "I didn't expect he was going to do something like that. We did have problems, but it didn't give him the reason to take Zondre's life. How can he be so evil to murder his own son?"

On Wednesday, several Delft residents said the mother may not be able to bury her child as she does not have any money.
