Paralympic legend Oscar Pistorius has denied murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, saying that he was madly in love with her. Oscar says that Reeva felt exactly the same way and had bought a Valentine's Day gift for him, before she was shot dead in his home in Pretoria, South Africa.
A statement by Pistorius was read out it court saying, "I fail to understand how I could be charged with murder, let alone premeditated murder, as I did not intend to kill my girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp... Nothing can be further from the truth that I planned the murder of my girlfriend..."
He added, "We agreed to spend (the) evening at home. By 10pm we were in bedroom, she was doing yoga, I was watching Tv with (my) prosthetic legs off. We were deeply in love... She felt the same way. Reeva had bought me a present for Valentine's Day..."
Oscar Pistorius has stated that he had no idea that his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was in the bathroom, when he shot at the bathroom door. Oscar claims that he thought it was a burglar and was trying to protect Reeva, not kill her. The case continues.
