The "blade runner" Oscar Pistorius who was such a big story during the Olympics has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot inside the Pistorius home in South Africa.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Denise Beukes said that Pistorius was at his home after the death of Steenkamp and "there is no other suspect involved." Beukes said the suspect was undergoing blood alcohol and forensic tests and had made a request to be brought to court immediately. Beukes said Pistorius will likely apply for bail, but the South African Police Service would oppose the application.
Beukes said there had been "previous incidents" at Pistorius home.
