Oscar Pistorius hearing postponed to August

- +

A South African court on Tuesday postponed the pre-trial hearing of Oscar Pistorius to August 19 to allow police to wrap up their probe into his Valentine's Day shooting of model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. 

South African Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius arrives on June 4, 2013 at the magistrates court in Pretoria for the first time since being freed on bail in February. The court postponed until August 19 the pre-trial hearing of Pistorius, who has been charged with murder, to give police time to wrap up their probe into his shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Looking tense and somber in a grey suit, blue shirt and tie, the 26-year-old Paralympian dubbed the "Blade Runner" briefly appeared in court for the first time since being released on bail over the murder that shattered his hero image.
