Dad JAYKRUSHNA SAHOO was "in a fit of rage" over the "sour relations with his wife." So naturally, he murdered their son to hurt her. Too much testosterone on this planet....

BHUBANESWAR: Marital discord between his parents proved fatal for a two-year-old boy at Salia Sahi within Nayapally police limits here on Tuesday. The child was allegedly thrown into a well, leading to his death early in the morning.
Prima facie, police held the child's father Jaykrushna Sahoo responsible and arrested him on charges of killing his son Kanha. "Sahoo threw his son into the well in a fit of rage. He was upset over his sour relations with his wife," a police officer said. "He has confessed to his crime," the police officer added. Sahoo owns a betel shop here. This was the first murder incident of 2012.
Sources said Jaykrushna was suspicious of his wife Laxmipriya's character and fought with her on Monday night. Laxmipriya said: "He rebuked me and went off to sleep in a huff. In the morning I found my child and husband missing from the house."
Sources said Jaykrushna had taken shelter in his sister's house near Acharya Vihar. He initially feigned ignorance about Kanha's whereabouts. When police grilled him, he spoke the truth. Police rushed to the well inside the house and found Kanha floating dead. Fire brigade was informed. Kanha's body was retrieved from the well and sent for postmortem.
