Oscar Pistorius Indicted
To mark Reeva Steenkamp’s birthday this year, Oscar Pistorius was indicted today on charges for her murder and illegal possession of ammunition. The trial date was set for March 3 by a Pretoria court.
The double-amputee Olympian has said he shot Reeva Steenkamp by mistake, believing she was an intruder in his home. Prosecutors, who allege he killed her after an argument, submitted a list of more than 100 witnesses for a trial that will be followed around the world. Pistorius appeared in court for the indictment, and was seen crying and holding hands with his siblings before proceedings started.
