Police in Mwinilunga have arrested a 58-year-old man for allegedly killing his 41-year-old son Sebastian Soneka over a stone believed to be a diamond.
Deputy police public relations officer Rae Hamoonga said the incident occurred around 19:00 hours on November 24, 2014.
Mr Hamoonga said it is alleged that the two had a family dispute over a â€œdiamondâ€ which Soneka found on the road near their village.
â€œIt was then that the suspect picked an axe and axed the deceased on the right ear and right eye brow,â€ he said.
Mr Hamoonga said Sokekaâ€™s body is in Mwinilunga District Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem and burial.
