Pistorius Cries in Court as Charges Upgraded to Premeditated Murder

Oscar Pistorius weeps in court

Olympic and Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius held his head in his hands and cried in open court as he heard the charges against him in Pretoria, South Africa Friday.

Pistorius, 26, was arrested Thursday and charged with shooting his girlfriend, FHM model and upcoming reality star Reeva Steenkamp, 29, at his Pretoria mansion earlier that morning.

A magistrate upgraded the charges from murder to the more serious charge of premeditated murder as it was revealed that Pistorius shot Steenkamp four times through a bathroom door.

Steenkamp was treated by paramedics but she died at the scene in an exclusive gated community that was surrounded by high walls and patrolled by armed guards.

The blond model was cast in a reality TV show that was set to begin filming in Jamaica this weekend. Pistorius was reportedly angry that Steenkamp agreed to appear in the reality TV show.

Pistorius was affectionately dubbed ‘Blade Runner’ for the custom blade style prosthetic legs he wore when he made history by becoming the first double-amputee to compete in the able bodied Olympic games in London this past Summer.

But Friday’s headlines in the South African newspapers read “Blade gunner?”

Police in Pretoria told reporters there had previously been domestic abuse incidents at Pistorius’ home.

But ex-girlfriends of the womanizing playboy took to social media websites to defend him against accusations of domestic abuse yesterday.

“I have dated Oscar on and off for 5 YEARS, NOT ONCE has he EVER lifted a finger to me or made me fear for my life,” tweeted Jenna Edkins, who offered her :love and support” to the Pistorius family.

Others weren’t as supportive.

Trish Taylor, mother of Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor, wrote on Facebook:

“I’m so glad Sammy is safe and out of the clutches of that man.”

“All I am saying is let him speak, let his side be heard without jumping to conclusions,” tweeted Edkins.

      from that Harvey site:

      Olympian Oscar Pistorius’ carbon fiber blade legs could EASILY be used as a weapon behind bars — but a rep for the South African prison where he’s locked up says, officials have decided not to confiscate the prosthetics.

      The rep says Pistorius will be allowed to keep his legs … at least until he faces a judge in a few hours — at which point that decision might change.

    • that_VA_thickchick

      He was mad cause she signed on to do a reality show. But is that a reason to kill her? CRAZY

      He tweeted in November of 12:

      NOTHING LIKE GETTING HOME TO HEAR THE WASHING MACHINE ON AND THINKING IT’S AN INTRUDER TO GO INTO FULL COMBAT RECON MODE INTO THE PANTRY! WAA

      So basically, he aint just get crazy. It’s been ongoing.

      Erica could make it. Maybe. I’ll pray for her. Her husband irks me and I don’t think he is cute, however I don’t have to sleep with him so it does not matter.
      I am super glad Tina finally had that damn baby!!! But when she is all pressed and everything, she is irking. I like her though.
      Goo is a fool! Period. And I wish to God someone would check her. And when is she gonna go work out or something. Justin irks me. And what come up does he think he is gonna get, because he comes off on tv bad, and the only one who really likes him is Goo.
      And riddle me this, why do all of them (not Mitch) think they can talk to ppl any old type of way, but then get mad when they get it back?! The fugg type shyt is that?! smh.

      unfortunate story. I wonder the real reason he killed her. I didn’t buy the “intruder” story when I first heard about this.

      I remember him running the 400M in London. He made it through the 1st round, but not the second.

      It’s quite clear some of y’all haven’t been thru chait and still look at the world thru rose colored glasses like a child. If anybody walks into my home that i am not expecting at an indecent hour of the morning…I will unload the clip on that a s s and then ask questions later. That’s disrespectful to come to someone’s house unexpected that clearly suffers mental issues.

    • 3halos

      Story sounds fishy…. hard to say really…. He could have made that statement on his twitter to kind of ‘set the tone’ ….like a prelude of what’s to come and then say… “See… I told you it was dangerous around these parts of my hood”. On the other hand, she didn’t seem to have all her cards in order either (missing a few screws) so who knows.

      NiNi, he lost his limbs as a kid b/c of a bone disease.

    • 3halos

      Kynedy, I’m right there with you. I won’t be gallantly walking through my house talking about, “Who’s that?” I will bust a cap in your knees and anything else I hit with the quickness and then ask questions later.
