A 14-YEAR-OLD Bindura boy is facing murder charges after fatally striking his step father with an iron bar following a domestic dispute.
The teenager from Zvakwana farm in Bindura appeared at the Bindura magistrate courts this Saturday being charged with the murder of his step father, Tawanda Chimushonga.
Prosecutor Edward Katsvairo told the court that earlier this month, the deceased who was heavily drunk had a misunderstanding with the minor and tried to hit him with an iron bar.
It is alleged the minor managed to wrestle the rod from the deceased and fatally struck him once on the head.
He has been remanded out of custody under the care of his mother and set to return to court on the 15th of December. ■
