Oscar to be charged with premeditated murder

Comment on this story


Pretoria - The State intends charging paralympian Oscar Pistorius with premeditated murder after the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, the Pretoria Magistrate's Court heard on Friday.

“Is the State's argument premeditated murder?” asked Magistrate Desmond Nair asked.

“Yes,” said prosecutor advocate Gerrie Nel.

Pistorius was arrested on Thursday after Steenkamp was shot dead in his home, at the Silver Woods Country Estate in Pretoria, on Valentine's Day.

The magistrate has postponed Pistorius’s case to February 19 after a highly charged first appearance on Friday. - Sapa
