Oscar Pistorius is planning a private memorial service to honor his girlfriend, whom he shot and killed on Valentine's Day.

The memorial for 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp is scheduled to take place tonight at the home of Oscar's uncle, where the Olympic sprinter has been staying since he was released on bail last week.

Oscar's rep released a statement, saying, "Oscar specifically requested the memorial service as he continues to grieve and remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva."

The rep adds, "Since it is such a sensitive issue, Oscar has asked for a private service with people who share his loss, including his family members who knew and loved Reeva as one of their own."

Oscar -- who stands accused of murdering Steenkamp -- claims he shot her by accident, thinking she was an intruder.

Wow, what a pig, holding a fake memorial service so he can look good to a jury. I mean, you’d have to be a total moron to believe his story. You have someone sleeping at your home, wake up and hear someone in the bathroom, and just open fire? Because so many intruders stop to use the bathroom? Yeah, he must think the people in his country are real idiots.

Let the guy do or say whatever he wants. He knows, his family knows, her fanily knows, and we know he's going down for this.
