NBC News:

Olympian Oscar Pistorius cried in court on Monday and friends of slain model Reeva Steenkamp were "visibly distressed" as the double-amputee was indicted on a premeditated murder charge.

On the day that would have been Steenkamp's 30th birthday, Pistorius stood in the dock of the courtroom in Pretoria, South Africa, and wiped away tears.

He also held hands with his brother Carl and sister Aimee. The court later set March 3 as the trial date for Pistorius.

Dubbed “Blade Runner” because of his prosthetic legs, Pistorius will face a premeditated murder charge in relation to the fatal Valentine’s Day shooting of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old law graduate.
