The Pistorius trial was delayed until August 19 to allow the prosecution more time to sort evidence. Leading judge calls news coverage 'scandalous.'
Global interest in the murder trial of Olympian Oscar Pistorius shows no sign of abating, after the double-amputee sprinter arrived for a brief court appearance on Tuesday to be greeted by a barrage of journalists.
Mr. Pistorius shot and killed his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day, and was subsequently released on $103,000 in bail.
Those expecting high drama today however were disappointed as Pistorius appeared in court for only about 15 minutes before the case was postponed until Aug. 19 – to allow the prosecutor more time to prepare.
A spokesperson for the prosecutor told reporters the investigation would be wrapped up by August.
