HOW does one explain these actions, especially toward the son?

I explain it, by looking at the culture of the area. Which can be summed up in three words: "Life is cheap".
This is a place, where murdering people of a different color than your own is not only an acceptable practice, it's state sanctioned in many instances. When one of their top, government officials gets on national television, and says the murdering of white farmers is acceptable because, "We only want a pure, Zulu nation.", that should give you an idea of how much they value life in general. Whether it be a blood relation or not. So this incident absolutely doesn't shock me.

Pretty simple. There some people in all races, religions and different ethnic groups who are proned to radical and extreme emotional anger. He and his wife had an argument. He got mad and took it out on his son. He was in a rage because something the wife said made him mad or made him feel threatened. If you enrage a soldier who is a combat veteran or make him feel threatened with words or actions, he will kill you. If he can't get you, he'll go after a friend or loved one of yours. You see such violence all the time in law enforcement or in combat/military operations. It is nothing new at all.
I couldn't read the article-the headline was enough for me.
As a woman, I have to say that deliberate violence against one's own children (or any children for that matter) is the one human behavior I cannot even begin to understand. It's the worst evil that anyone can do. It is unspeakable.

Sapient conclusions from New Zealand. Pretty grisly ones, too.
