Sprinter Oscar Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend. Model Reeva Steenkamp was shot inside the Olympic athlete's home in South Africa. Known as the "Blade Runner" and "the fastest man on no legs,", Pistorius, a member of South Africa’s national track and field team, made Olympics history last year as the first athlete to compete with a prosthetic limb.

Police in South Africa do not name criminal suspects until they have appeared in court but police spokesperson Brigadier Denise Beukes said that Pistorius was at his home after the death of Steenkamp and that, "there is no other suspect involved." Beukes said Pistorius was undergoing blood alcohol and forensic tests. He had made a request to be brought to court immediately. Beukes said he would apply for bail, but the South African Police Service would oppose the bail application and that there had been "previous incidents" at Pistorius' home.
