Pistorius Talks Before Tuesday Hearing

Oscar Pistorius has been charged in the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, from last February. He has been living with an uncle since and is awaiting a court hearing Tuesday to determine the next step in the legal process in his native South Africa.

CNN's Robyn Curnow sits down with the Pistorius family before the hearing to get their side of things...

Understandably, it makes perfect sense for the Pistorius family and their defense team to get their side of events out before the hearing. If they can be heard, as many times over as possible, they can prejudice the jury pool, public opinion that may be wavering, and any other element of the legal system to possibly sway influence in either verdict or sentencing.

The evidence itself seems too overwhelming to convict, but the HQ has seen it collapse under its own weight sometimes in high profile cases- and this would be another of those opportunities...

Tuesday will be interesting...
