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.

Does anyone believe this circus he's creating. It's not enough that he murdered her brutally, he now will now throw this pretend memorial. Are people by afraid of sins these days??? He's onl going to one place after life and one place only where it's really really hot. There will be punishment for his actions in this life or after

Latest word is, he took a brunette to Vegas in December (I think).
Plus that he did beat her head in with the bat.
Dude is homicidally mental.
My HAYT for this DOOSH increases exponentially by the day!!!
Seriously.
And his family supporting him totally grosses me out, too
