Oscar Pistorius Formally Charged With Premeditated Murder

The paralympic star will go on trial on March 3 for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
At a hearing earlier today (Monday) in  Pretoria, prosecutors have accused Oscar Pistorius of shooting Ms Steenkamp to death on Valentine's night, but he claims he opened fire on the 29-year-old after mistaking her for an intruder.
Wiping tears from his eyes, a visibly emotional Pistorius stood silently in the dock as he was formally indicted for premeditated murder at Pretoria Magistrates' Court.
The judge set his trial to run from March 3 to March 20 next year at North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
Premeditated murder comes with a mandatory sentence of life behind bars.
Reeva Rebecca Steenkamp would have turned 30 today August 19th.
May her soul continue to rest in peace, Amen.
