Pistorius

NBC News:

Olympic ‘Blade Runner’ Oscar Pistorius told security guards that nothing was wrong after he shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, according to leaked prosecution evidence ahead of his murder trial, South African media reported Friday.

Security guards at the athlete’s residence were given the assurance when they telephoned him after the shooting to ask if everything was okay, news channel eNCA reported – citing prosecution documents in its possession.

Prosecutors will also argue that ballistic evidence suggests the amount, trajectory and grouping of the shots fired through a locked door can only indicate a direct intention to kill, according to a similar report by Eyewitness News.

Pistorius' trial is scheduled to begin on March 3.

The Eyewitness News report – also based on leaked documents - said prosecutors “will rely on 13 facts” to make their case that the Paralympic medal-winner is guilty of murder.
