Prosecutor Charges Pistorius With Premeditated Murder

Olympian Oscar Pistorius fired into the door of a small bathroom where his girlfriend was cowering after a shouting match on Valentine’s Day, hitting her three times, a South African prosecutor said Tuesday as he charged the sports icon with premeditated murder.

In an affidavit revealed during the bail hearing, Pistorius said he was “absolutely mortified” over his girlfriend’s death, and that he shot through the door thinking it was a burglar on the other side who had broken into his home through the bathroom window. He claims he then broke down the door with a cricket bat.
