Details are scarce in the murder case against Double Amputee Olympic Sprinter Oscar Pistorius, but the police want you to know they do not think this was an accident. They told the court today they will be charging Pistorius with premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Police said the victim was shot four times at Pistorius’ villa in a gated community. Officers found a 9 mm pistol inside the home. Pistorius was formally charged at Pretoria Magistrate’s Court with one count of murder after his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, a model and budding reality TV show participant, was shot and killed at Pistorius’ upmarket home in the predawn hours of Thursday. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said Friday in court it was premeditated murder, indicating the prosecution would file that more serious charge, upgraded from murder.
