Oscar Pistorius' legal odyssey has begun. The history-making double-amputee sprinter dubbed "Blade Runner" appeared in court Friday in Pretoria, where he was officially charged with one count of murder in the fatal shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The 26-year-old South African sprinter broke down in tears as the charge was read, burying his face in his hands. Prosecutors, meanwhile, said they would seek to prove that Steenkamp's murder had been premeditated. Pistorius is accused of gunning down the 30-year-old South African model Thursday at his home in Pretoria, where she was reportedly shot four times after Pistorius allegedly mistook her for an intruder.
