Bad news turned worse for the Pistorius family as the brother of Olympic star Oscar Pistorius is facing a culpable homicide charge for a 2008 accident on the road. Family of the double-amputee runner from South Africa have enough on their hands already with Oscar's premeditated murder charge from the Februrary 14th shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home. Now, brother Carl, who was already in court last Thursday for Oscar's bail hearing, will need to challenge his own charges.
Pistorius' Lawyer Kenny Oldwage said in a statement that Carl had been involved in a car accident "in which a woman motorcyclist sadly lost her life." He also said that "there is no doubt that Carl is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court."
Carl was seend driving to the affluent neighborhood of Waterkloof, suburb of Pretoria, where his brother Oscar is reportedly currently staying with his Uncle Arnold while out on bail.
