Oscar Pistorius Indicted for Murder in Reeva Steenkamp Death

Oscar Pistorius arrives at the Pretoria Magistrates Court for an indictment hearing on Monday morning (August 19) in Pretoria, South Africa.

The 26-year-old sprint runner is accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp though he denies the claim, saying he mistook her for an intruder.

Oscar was seen crying and holding hands with his siblings before the hearing started. It is interesting to note that today would have marked Reeva‘s 30th birthday.

During the hearing, a trial date of March 3 was set. The trial will be presided over by a judge as South Africa does not have trial by jury. If convicted of premeditated murder, Oscar will serve a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison, according to USA Today.
