Today the day that would have been Reeva Steenkamp’s 30th birthday, Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius was formally charged with premeditated murder in a South African court. Pistorius still maintains that the shooting was an accidental shooting maintaining that he thought Steenkamp was an intruder.

During court proceeding today, the prosecution offered evidence that said people heard arguments taking place before the fatal shooting took place in Valentines day. Pistorius did what he does each time he appears in court.

He stood there crying like a little girl. Meanwhile friends and family members of Steenkamp were visibly shaken by the allegations.  The court set the trail date of March 3rd, 2014. Pistorius stood in the court holding hands with his brother Carl and his sister Aimee.

No one was able to hold hands with Steenkamp who was brutally murdered last February. Pistorius’s brutal act took the life of a woman who was friends with many. Her friends that lined the court room were visibly distressed.

Pistorius didn’t have much to say during the short hearing, he did make this statement; “I am satisfied with the provisions that my legal team have made.”

The court was furnished with a list of 100 witnesses. Pistorius was also charged with illegal possession of ammunition. Just a week ago a South African news paper published photos of Pistorius on a beach enjoying a holiday with friends. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any freedom.
