Blade Runner, Oscar Pistorius, the paralympic superstar and double amputee, was charged with murder today in the death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, who was shot four times in the pre-dawn hours in his home in South Africa.
She was allegedly shot in the hand and head.
Police have allegedly been called to the house before for previous incidents between the two, but some friends said she did not mention domestic violence to them.
