The stepfather of 'Baby Daniel', a three-year-old boy whose death shocked South Africa in 2016, has been found guilty of murder and child abuse by a court in Johannesburg.

"Baby Daniel" died after suffering burn wounds to 60% of his body, as well as broken bones and a severe head injury.

The boy's mother was found guilty of neglect and abuse.

The judge said that while there was no evidence that she had participated in the killing, she had "deliberately neglected to give [the child] proper care."
