Booysen's father, Klaasie Speelman, was apparently stabbed to death on Tuesday night at his shack near Bredasdorp dumping site.

Louw said the man, also a resident in the area, allegedly asked Speelman for money, and he gave him R10.

“The man was (allegedly) not satisfied with the money and stabbed him to death when he could not give him more.”

Speelman's girlfriend was hiding during the incident and reported it to police the following day.

The man would appear in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
