Cevher Toktas was arrested after he confessed to cops that he killed his five-year-old son by smothering him with a pillow while the child was being treated in a hospital.

The 32-year-old allegedly went to police 11 days after the death of his son to admit to what he had did.

According to The Sun, Toktas admitted to smothering his son to death while the child was in the hospital for coronavirus.

“Toktas allegedly said in a chilling statement reported in local media: “I pressed a pillow on my son who was lying on his back.

“For 15 minutes, I pressed down on the pillow without lifting it up. My son was struggling during that time.

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

He is alleged to have told the investigators he killed Kasim because he “didn’t love him” and had never loved his youngest son “since he was born”.

He reportedly said not liking the youngster was the “sole reason” he killed him, adding: “I don’t have any mental issues.”

Toktas will reportedly be tried for murder and faces life in prison. Authorities have ordered the body be exhumed for a post-mortem.
