Oscar Pistorius’ elder brother Carl has just been charged for allegedly killing a motorcyclist in an accident that occurred back in 2010.
According to a new report from eNCA News, a South African TV channel, Oscar’s brother killed a female biker in a car crash, and prosecutors say it was his ‘reckless driving’ that led to the yet-to-be-identified biker’s death.
Carl’s lawyer told the station that his client ‘deeply regrets the accident’ (as he should, of course) but he was not drunk when the accident happened. ‘There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court,’ he added.
His trial was fixed on Thursday, the same day his brother Oscar was granted bail, but we learnt it has been postponed till next month.
Carl faces up to 15 years in jail if convicted.
