Oscar Pistorius’s Older Brother Is Now Facing A Murder Charge Too
It seems as though everyone around the Oscar Pistorius murder case is being hit with some sort of charge, as his older brother is now being accused of homicide for killing a woman in a car accident five years ago.
Carl Pistorius is being charged with culpable homicide after allegedly killing a motorcyclist in a 2008 accident outside of Johannesburg.
According to a South African news station, Carl Pistorius appeared in court last Thursday, but his trial was delayed until March.
His lawyer, Kenny Oldwage, said in a statement Sunday that “Carl deeply regrets the accident.”
Oldwage said blood tests conducted at the time of the accident proved that Carl had not been under the influence of alcohol.
Oldwage added that charges brought after the accident were initially dropped, but then reinstated by national prosecutors.
Oscar Pistorius is being charged with the murder of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day. He made bail on Friday.
