Oscar Pistorius was arrested and charged for murdering his girlfriend on Valentines Day last year. The famous athlete’s fate is scheduled for September 11th according to news sources. The jury will find him guilty or not guilty for Reeva Steenkamp’s death.
On Valentine’s Day, Pistorius shot into his bathroom several times because he thought he was being robbed when it fact it was his girlfriend. His lawyer, in closing arguments, said the athlete has a fear or crime due to years of abuse. With his prosthetic leg, it was a response to “primal instinct”.
State attorney says it was a premeditated murder as the couple argued hours before the shooting and that Pistorius knew she was in the bathroom. He also argues that it’s still murder regardless as he shot through a door without a cause as no one was bursting out of the door to attack Pistorius.
