Oscar Pistorius 'Breaks Down' as Court Hears Murder Charge

Oscar Pistorius reportedly broke down in tears after being formally charged over the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.  
The South African Olympian and Paraolympian was seen shaking and sobbing after prosecutors said they would pursue a 'premeditated murder' charge over the death of his girlfriend.  
Reeva Steenkamp's body was discovered at Oscar’s home in Silverwoods country estate in his native South Africa in the early hours of Thursday morning. Paramedics were called but Reeva was pronounced dead at the scene after receiving four shots to her head and arm.  

The prosecution dismisses earlier claims that Oscar Pistorius mistook his girlfriend for an intruder as she surprised him on Valentine’s morning, and instead argue he committed premeditated murder when he allegedly shot his girlfriend dead. 
South African police also deny the burglary and intruder claims. The defense’s request for bail has been postponed until Tuesday and Pistorius will now be kept in a police station in Brooklyn, Pretoria.
