Oscar Pistorius, the Olympian without legs who became famous in 2012, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend.

Pistorius -- the paralympian known as Blade Runner -- is accused of shooting 30-year-old Reeva Steenkamp in the hand and head -- allegedly with a 9 mm pistol found at the scene.

Pistorius, 26, had reportedly been dating Steenkamp for a few months. She was a law graduate and an aspiring model.

What type of graduate was she? "A law graduate" could be law school, law enforcement, etc.... I am assumed you meant law school, but why in the world would you go to school and work so hard for a law school degree, then want to waste it and be a "model"?
