Pistorius Disputes Allegation He Murdered His Girlfriend

PRETORIA, South Africa (February 15, 2013)--A statement issue Friday by the family of Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius and his management disputes "in the strongest terms" the claim that Pistorius murdered his girlfriend.

The statement was issued Friday after the double-amputee Olympian wept in court as prosecutors said they would pursue a charge of premeditated murder against him for the Valentine's Day death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

The statement, issued from London, said, "The alleged murder is disputed in the strongest terms" and also said that Pistorius "would like to send his deepest sympathies to the family of Reeva."

Pistorius will be held in a police station in South Africa's capital, Pretoria, until Tuesday, when he appears again for a bail hearing.
