Former Olympian Oscar Pistorius, known as the blade runner will be formally charged with premeditated murder on Monday in the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius fatally shot and killed Steenkamp on Valentines day. This charge of premeditated murder have been a long time coming for Steenkamp’s family.

The trial won’t start until sometime in 2014. Why it takes so long to bring Pistorius  to justice is anyone’s guess. He has had far more freedom than he deserves. The South African prosecutors, feel as though there is more than enough evidence gathered in the case to prove a conviction.

Although a trial date has not been set, Medupe Simasiku the spokesman for the National Prosecuting Authority feels the date will be set on Monday. Reports have surfaced saying that Pistorius could also face additional charges for discharging a firearm recklessly on two other occasions.

Simasiku refused to comment on additional charges. If convicted on the charge of premeditated murder, Pistorius  would be sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 25 years. It is a shame they don’t have the death penalty in South Africa. This is one case that would merit it.

For Pistorius  to get up in the middle of the night and kill Steenkamp, it shows just how cold blooded he could be. Someone this cold blooded doesn’t deserve to live in our opinion.
