Oscar Pistorius
' older brother faces up to 15 YEARS in the slammer for allegedly killing a female biker during a fatal car crash -- this according to new reports.

Carl Pistorius has been charged with culpable homicide -- according to eNCA news, a South African TV channel -- stemming from a car crash in 2010, in which prosecutors say his reckless driving led to the death a motorcyclist.

Carl's lawyer recently told the station that Carl "deeply regrets the accident," but was adamant his client was not drunk at the the time of the collision, adding, "There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court."

According to reports, Carl's trial was set to begin last Thursday -- the same day his brother Oscar (who is facing a charge of premeditated murder in the death of Reeva Steemkamp) was freed on bail -- but it was postponed until next month.

Your argument is thought provoking, however I disagree. Many people fire only once when shooting at a possible burglar especially if they are behind a locked door. This is an article that could be interesting to you about the case http://constitutionallyspeaking.co.za/oscar-pistorius-criminal-law-101. This article shows that Pistorius indeed did kill his girlfriend and not out of self-protection.
