PROSECUTORS TO WRAP UP PISTORIUS MURDER PROBE BY AUGUST

0

JOHANNESBURG: South African prosecutors said Sunday they will seek an adjournment at Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius’s June court appearance to complete their investigations into the Valentine’s Day killing of his girlfriend. Pistorius is due to appear before a Pretoria court on June 4, but the prosecutors said the hearing was expected to last just 10 minutes and would be a “mere postponement for further investigations”. The 26-year-old double amputee known as “Blade Runner” for his trademark artificial limbs is charged with the murder of his girlfriend at his upmarket Pretoria home on February 14. The runner claims he shot Reeva Steenkamp through a locked bathroom door in the dead of the night after mistaking her for an intruder.
