    Blade runner faces murder charge



    South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been arrested over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home, local media say.

    Police said they have charged a 26-year-old man with murder, but did not confirm it was Mr Pistorius.

    The precise circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear. Reports say he may have mistaken her for a burglar.

    Yeah I have read that in the news today. Never thought such a person would do it, however it could be an accident though.

    First they said on the radio that he thought she was an intruder and that's why he shot her, but the South African police have denied that this information came from them.

    Also neighbours heard some domestic stuff going on yesterday and before the shooting.

    When he goes to to court, he won't have a leg to stand on.
    It's going to frustrate him until he can't stand It.
    I just hope he doesn't lose his footing.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Guess we will see when/if a trial starts.

    far as mistaking her for a burglar this is actually one of my biggest fears with my family. That's why I tell them I would rather you turn on all lights and tell me your sneaking in then me mistake you for someone breaking in that could possibly do harm to you.

    small update

    Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic star, broke down and wept uncontrollably in court on Friday as prosecutors said they would pursue a charge of premeditated murder against him.Pistorius is accused of shooting dead his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, a model and reality TV show participant, at his home in the early hours of Thursday morning.
    The South African athlete, dubbed the "blade runner", repeatedly pressed his fingers to his eyes and looked down, sobbing and shaking, in an hour-long hearing in a packed courtroom in Pretoria.
    The magistrate delayed Pistorius's bail hearing until Tuesday and ruled that the 26-year-old would be held at a Pretoria police station until then, despite a likely perception of "preferential treatment", since it would be more common for the accused to be detained in prison.
    Pistorius, his hair short and neat, had solemnly entered the packed court wearing a grey suit and blue tie. He quickly broke down, putting his hands to his face, his trauma reflected in the faces of watching photographers.
    "Take it easy," chief magistrate Desmond Nair told him. "Come take a seat."
    As proceedings continued, Pistorius repeatedly lost his composure. When the magistrate used the phrase "premeditated murder" the athlete leaned forward as if trying to bend over double, his head bowed, breathing hard and weeping.
    Nair announced the case as "the state versus Mr Oscar Leonard Pistorius", involving a charge of one count of murder. The prosecution said the charge was premeditated murder, indicating the prosecution would file that more serious charge.
    Nair presided over the hearing in a hot, redbrick courtroom crammed with more than 100 people, including numerous local and international journalists. The magistrate ruled that no recordings of court proceedings would be allowed in the case.
    Pistorius's father, Henke, was in court, as was his brother Carl, sister Aimee and other supporters of the double-amputee runner. At one point Henke leaned forward and placed a comforting hand on Pistorius's back; at another, Carl put a hand on his shoulder. Both declined to comment as they left the court.
    Family members reached forward to touch Pistorius's shoulder as he stood and left the courtroom while cameras clicked and flashed.
    Controversial South African businessman Kenny Kunene, wearing sunglasses, was also present, saying he had come to support his friend Pistorius. The hearing was relatively informal with court attendees wearing T-shirts and jeans, and journalists frequently tweeting from phones. Yet the man in the dock was evidently inconsolable.
    The Paralympic champion had arrived at court earlier in the back of a police vehicle, hiding his face with a jacket and A4 notebook pressed to the window.
    Forensic experts were expected to continue examining the house in the upmarket estate on the outskirts of Pretoria where Steenkamp, 29, was killed. It is believed four shots were fired.
    Pistorius made history in London last year when he became the first double-amputee track athlete to compete in the Olympic Games.
    The tragedy dominated South African TV, radio and newspapers, with the Times front page headline stating: "Oscar's darkest day."

    Well he is out on bail.
    I listened to some of it and they went into alot of his personal life, ho he socialised with and how he met the deceased. From the hearign it sounded liek to me they didnt know each other very long 6 months at most.

    South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, who faces murder charges over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend, has been granted bail after a four-day hearing.

    Magistrate Desmond Nair said the state had not made a case that he would flee, or that he had a violent character.

    The Paralympic sprinter denies murder, saying he shot Reeva Steenkamp thinking she was an intruder at his home.

    The next hearing in the case has been set for 4 June. Bail conditions include a ban on leaving Pretoria.

    Mr Nair took almost two hours to deliver his judgement.

    He criticised the testimony of lead detective Hilton Botha, saying he had not followed up important leads and had changed his testimony.

    But the magistrate also said he had difficulty understanding why Mr Pistorius had opened fire in the way he did.

    However, he said Mr Pistorius had "reached out to meet the state's case" and had given a full version of events at an early state.

    Ms Steenkamp, 29, was a model and law graduate with a burgeoning television career.
