The Paralympian Oscar Pistorious was in court today and was formally charged with the premeditated murder of his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. His lawyers had been hoping for the lesser charge of manslaughter after Oscar claimed he shot Reeva dead in his home on Thursday February 14 2013 after mistaken her for an intruder.
Wiping tears from his eyes, Pistorius stood silently in the dock as he was formally indicted for premeditated murder. The judge set his trial to run from 3rd of March to 20th of March, 2014 at North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
Premeditated murder comes with a mandatory sentence of life behind bars. Ms Steenkamp if alive would have turned 30 today, August 19th
Don't know but i don't think he would have killed his GF willfully.
