Oscar Pistorius will be in court in Pretoria tomorrow morning to seek bail after being charged with the premeditated murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
The hearing will take place as the family of the 29-year-old law graduate and model gather for her funeral in her home town of Port Elizabeth. Africa Correspondent Rohit Kachroo reports:
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'.
