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.

But make sure you go to the bathroom somewhere else before coming to the memorial if your invited because he might think your an intruder and shoot with a assault rifle!

A great PR move Mr Pistorious, pretend to grieve and be saddened, and announce to the world (and media) about your planned private memorial, for the girl you loved, and killed. Lets see how this help your case, or help change public perception. I wonder if you invited Reevas family and friends, or are guests only your family, who continue to buy your bull****??

Oh wait. Now she's his "partner" and his family knew her as "one of their own" ---- This is all a twisted public relations spin and further points to his guilt. The initital news reports were that his family had not even met her yet and now she's 'one of their own." lol.... "partner makes it seem like they were married or living together which is not the case.

Word from the family she was living with is that Stumpy was always calling her nonstop, was jealous and controlling. They did not get a good impression of him.

He should have kept it to himself. Seems like a PR ploy and very disrespectful to her FAMILY!

If you read his tweets prior to the 2/14 incident, you can see that he had no affection nor placed any significance on his 'gf', always prioritized his buddies and families first, as if she was just there like a fan cheering him, what a total jerk, killed her, and now this???!!! PSYCHO.....I see a movie coming up on this very soon!!!! Ang Lee?
