Oscar Pistorius broke down in tears in a South African courtroom Friday after being charged with the premeditated murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
The Olympic sprinter's attorneys requested to postpone the bail hearing, as did the prosecution.
He did not enter a plea and will remain in custody.
In his first public response, Pistorius’s family and management team said in a statement that “the alleged murder is disputed in the strongest terms."
The statement also said Pistorius “would like to send his deepest sympathies to the family” of Reeva Steenkamp, who died at his home at age 30.
