                      === Pistorius to remain in jail ===
 
 Pretoria,  South Africa  (Sports  Network) -  South  African Olympic  sprinter
 Oscar Pistorius will remain in jail until his next court appearance on Tuesday
 after  prosecutors said  Friday they  intend to  pursue a  premeditated murder
 charge following the killing of the runner's girlfriend on Thursday.
 
 Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed early Thursday morning at Pistorius' home.
 
 According  to  the Pretoria News, Pistorius  broke down in court after hearing
 the  prosecution's intention to charge him with premeditated murder. The court
 ordered a postponement of proceedings until next Tuesday.
 
 Police  have  offered  few  details surrounding  the  shooting,  leaving  much
 speculation.
 
 Initial reports had indicated that Pistorius might have mistaken Steenkamp for
 an  intruder, but  police on Thursday would not confirm those reports and said
 the investigation was ongoing.
 
 According  to  Beeld newspaper, Steenkamp was  shot four times -- once each in
 the  head, chest,  pelvis and hand. The  paper also cited a neighbor as saying
 Steenkamp's body was found in a bathroom.
 
 Steenkamp,  a  model who was  30 years old,  and Pistorius had reportedly been
 dating for about a year.
 
 Pistorius,  known  as the "Blade Runner,"  made history at the London Olympics
 last  year  when he became  the first double-amputee  runner to compete in the
 Games.
 
 The  26-year-old  Pistorius had both  legs amputated before  he was a year old
 after being born without fibula bones and runs on prosthetic blades.
 
 The  International  Association of  Athletics Federations (IAAF) had initially
 said  that his  prosthetics were considered technical aids and in violation of
 an  IAAF  rule. But the  Court of Arbitration  for Sport later overturned that
 decision, making him eligible to compete against able-bodied runners.
 
 Pistorius  qualified  for South Africa's Olympic  team in 2012 and competed in
 the 400-meter race, reaching the semifinals, and the 1,600-meter relay.
