Pistorius Arrives For Court Appearance

((HT: London Telegraph))

Pretoria, South Africa prosecutors will pursue a charge of premeditated murder against Oscar Pistorius for killing his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, overnight Thursday at his home. She was shot four times by the world-class sprinter who claims he thought she was an intruder.

Here's the video of Pistorius arriving in court...

Pistorius' family and management team produced the following statement after they left the courtroom where no plea was entered:

"The alleged murder is disputed in the strongest terms... He would also like to express his thanks through us today for all the messages of support he has received -- but as stated our thoughts and prayers today should be for Reeva and her family -- regardless of the circumstances of this terrible, terrible tragedy,"

The bail hearing has been postponed until Tuesday and Wednesday. And the idea of the premeditated murder charge would make it more difficult, by design, to get a bail figure. The charge carries a life in prison charge...
