A South African judge has ruled paralympian Oscar Pistorius WILL face premeditated murder charges in the death of his girlfriend.
During this morning's bail hearing the prosecution laid out what it says happened on the night Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed in Pistorius' home. The so-called Blade Runner is reportedly crying whenever he hears Steenkamp's name.
Prosecutors claim Pistorius took the time to attach his legs then walked about 20 feet to the bathroom door and shot four times through it. They say, "The bold facts make this a preplanned murder."
The prosecution attacked Pistorius' assertion that he thought his girlfriend was an intruder, saying, "We have a woman who locked herself in a small bathroom and she couldn't go anywhere. It must have been horrific…"
The defense argued that it was not premeditated. In an affidavit, Pistorius said he was “absolutely mortified at death of my beloved Reeva.” His lawyers also asked if the prosecutor has an eyewitness who saw Pistorius putting on his prosthetic legs and walking to the bathroom.
Later this morning the judge is expected to rule on whether Pistorius will be granted bail. HLN sports anchor Carlos Diaz will keep you updated in the Bleacher Report during Morning Express with Robin Meade.
