Nathan Vikatos charged with murder of three-year-old son in Sydney


Nathan Vikatos, 45, has been charged with murder over the stabbing death of his three-year-old son in Sydney’s south-west, The Guardian has reported.

NSW Police found the child’s body about 4pm on Wednesday, May 31 after responding to a “concern for welfare” call from a female relative of the family.

Police believe the mother of the boy died a few years ago.

Vikatos was seriously injured with what police suspect were self-inflicted knife wounds in the Riverwood unit on Washington Avenue.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Vikatos was due to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Saturday on a murder charge, but the case was adjourned for two months after a brief mention.

The matter was adjourned to Burwood Local Court on August 9.
