This is crazy…apparently there have been other reported instances between Pistorius and his girlfriend as well….spotted on Al Jazeera:

Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius has been charged with murder over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend at his home in Pretoria.

Police said they opened a murder case after receiving a call on Thursday morning that there had been a shooting at Pistorius’ home in the upscale Silverlakes gated community on the outskirts of the capital.

Katlego Mogale, a police spokeswoman, said that when officers arrived they found paramedics trying to revive a 30-year-old woman who had been shot an unspecified number of times. The woman died at the home, Mogale said.

Officers found a 9mm pistol at the scene and took the 26-year-old Pistorius into custody. Mogale said Pistorius was expected to appear in court later on Thursday.

“There are witnesses and they have been interviewed this morning. We are talking about neighbours and people that heard things earlier in the evening and when the shooting took place,” said Denise Beukes, a police brigadier, in a press conference outside the crime scene.
