Preacher Olga Booysen described Oscar Pistorius as a "very humbled and broken young man". She said she prayed with the Olympic and Paralympic hero last night, and the experience was "very devastating."
Pistorius will concentrate on defending himself against allegations that he murdered his model girlfriend on Valentine's morning.
The South African press say the weapon is a key piece of police evidence, but Pistorius' family said the death is a 'tragic accident.'
The family and management of Oscar Pistorius have released a statement disputing the murder charge against him 'in the strongest terms'.
