Olympian Pistorius indicted on murder charges


PRETORIA, South Africa — Olympian Oscar Pistorius was indicted on charges of murder and illegal possession of ammunition for the shooting death of his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.

A Pretoria court set March 3 as the trial date for the double-amputee, who says he shot Reeva Steenkamp by mistake, believing she was an intruder in his home. Prosecutors say he killed her after an argument. The prosecution submitted a list of more than 100 witnesses.
