A Turkish footballer was arrested after allegedly confessing to the that he killed his five-year-old son with a pillow because he ‘didn’t love him.’

Defender Cevher Toktas, 32, who played in Turkey ‘s Super Lig between 2007 and 2009, was arrested earlier this month after his five-year – old son, Kasim, died at Dortcelik Children’s Hospital in Bursa City.

According to Turkish media, Toktas took his son to the hospital on 23 April because he had breathing difficulties and high fever-two symptoms of coronavirus, which has so far infected more than 140,000 people in Turkey.

Doctors put Toktas and his son together into quarantine but he reportedly told workers later that day that Kasim was struggling to breathe. The child was put into intensive care but died soon after.

It is reported that staff at the hospital ruled the death of the five-year-old as accidental, and that Covid-19 was recorded as the cause of death.

Eleven days after the boy’s disappearance, however, Toktas reportedly traveled to a nearby station to turn in and confess that his son had been killed.

‘After he stopped moving, I lifted the pillow. Then I yelled for doctors to help to draw any suspicions away from me.’

Toktas is also said to have told cops that because he “didn’t love him” and hadn’t “because he was born,” the reason he killed Kasim was.

The defender, who has previously maintained he has no ‘mental problems,’ was arrested immediately. He is currently being tried for ‘murdering a close relative’ and if found guilty faces a life sentence.

Kasim was buried in a blessed grave shortly after his death, but officials now want his body to be exhumed so that as part of the ongoing investigation an autopsy can take place.
