Paralympic Star Pistorius Charged With Murder

South African Paralympic super star Oscar Pistorius was charged with murder case over fatal shooting his girlfriend in his home in Pretoria. Police says that they received call on Thursday morning from neighborhood close to the Oscar Pistorius house that there are shooting in Oscar Pistorius house which is located at upscale Silverlakes gated community.

Reeva Steenkamp was reported to have been dating Pistorius for a year. In the social pages of last weekend's Sunday


Independent, she described Pistorius as having "impeccable" taste.
"His gifts are always thoughtful," she was quoted as saying.
"We are all devastated. Her family is in shock," Steenkamp's agent, Sarita Tomlinson, told Reuters, in tears over the incident, which happened in the early hours of the morning.
"They did have a good relationship," she said. "Nobody actually knows what happened."
Pistorius, who is known as "Blade Runner," races wearing carbon-fibre prosthetic blades after he was born without a fibula in both legs.
He was the first double amputee to run in the Olympics and reached the 400 semi-finals in London 2012.
In last year's Paralympics he suffered his first loss over 200 metres in nine years. After the race he sullied his media darling persona somewhat by questioning the legitimacy of Brazilian winner Alan Oliveira's prosthetic blades. The comments sparked controversy, though Pistorius was quick to express his regret.
South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime and many home owners have weapons to defend themselves against intruders.
