Pretoria: South African star sprinter Oscar Pistorius has gone from being a hero to a devil, Reeva Steenkamp's mother June said in a British newspaper interview published Thursday. (Pistorius grilled again by prosecution)
She told the Daily Mirror she is obsessed with watching Pistorius's every move in the Pretoria courtroom where he is being tried for the killing of her daughter, a law graduate, model and aspiring actress, on Valentine's Day in 2013.
Prosecutors say the 27-year-old Paralympian and Olympian deliberately shot Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine's Day after the couple had a fight. He says he shot her by accident through a locked bathroom door after mistaking her for an intruder.
