Months after the brutal Valentine’s Day killing of his girlfriend, a date has finally been set for the trial of Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius.
The trial of the sportsman who is charged with murder in the death of model Reeva Steenkamp, will begin in March 2014, his attorney Kenny Oldwage told CNN on Sunday.
The first phase will take place in March, but the entire trial could take place at various times across a year or more due to potential motions and postponements along the way.
Pistorius will be served with an indictment Monday following the completion of the investigation. It’s the day that would have been Steenkamp’s 30th birthday.
Pistorius is charged with premeditated murder over the February shooting death.
