Oscar Pistorius and girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp

This story had faded away in light of the Aaron Hernandez’s murder indictment, but it is now heading to trial. To refresh your memory Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend while she was in the bathroom.

Pistorius says he believed she was an intruder, but the police think otherwise.

Prosecutors said Pistorius shot ”with the intention to kill a person,” and a prosecution spokesman said after the hearing that it was premeditated murder.

The prosecution also will attempt to show the couple argued before she was killed as part of its case that Pistorius intended to kill Steenkamp.

”Some of the state witnesses heard a woman scream, followed by moments of silence, then heard gunshots and then more screaming,” the prosecution said in the 11-page indictment.
