'Blade Runner' kills girlfriend

South African sprinter "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius was charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he had fatally shot at his home in the early hours the morning. He was granted bail on murder and gun charges, pending trial. Pistorious claims he shot Steenkamp believing her to be an intruder and he opened fire because he felt vulnerable without his prosthetic legs on. Getty Images
