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.

He is lying. He would have to take the time to put his legs on if he heard a noise. Neighbors heard them arguing. Cops were out there several times before. Why she stayed with him is a good question. Let him rot in jail for the rest of his life.
