Pistorius charged with murder after 'he accidentally shot dead his model girlfriend

PARALYMPIC superstar Oscar Pistorius was today charged with murder after allegedly shooting his girlfriend dead in the middle of the night.

Reeva Steenkamp, 30, a former FHM model who had been dating the 26-year-old for two months, was shot four times in the head, chest and arm inside his mansion in Pretoria, South Africa at 4am.

The athlete may have killed her with a handgun kept next to his bed after a Valentine’s Day surprise went tragically wrong and he thought she was a burglar, sources have said.

But police say her death is being treated as murder, adding that officers had been sent to previous incidents of a ‘domestic nature’ at his address on the exclusive Silver Woods gated estate.

Brigadier Denise Beukes added police were ‘very surprised’ by the intruder suggestion, telling reporters: ‘These allegations did not come from us.’

Pistorius was due in court this afternoon but the hearing has now been delayed to 7am and the sprinter is in custody.-www.dailymail.co.uk
