Murderer Mikey Schultz causes a row in sentencing as Kim Martin, Reeva Steenkamp’s eldest cousin, says the Paraolympian “needs to pay for what he has done”.
It might seems that Oscar Pistorus is experiencing a hard time as his future lies in the hands of the jury but he is not the only one who is paying for his mistakes. Oscar Pistorius’s sister, Aimee Pistorius,was reported to have bursted into tears after a member of the anti-Pistorius camp allegedly used a profane word to describe her during a break in the trial’s proceedings on Thursday , October 16, 2014.
Miss Pistorius claimed that Mikey , the self-confessed killer of a local mining magnate who escaped jail through a plea bargain with the state, chanted “f*** you” at her after she sought to have him removed from the family bench in the public gallery.
According to The Telegraph, Aimee whispered to Barry Roux, the athlete’s barrister, who later invited police officers over to help them have Mikey removed from his seat in the auditorium.
Report also holds that Mr Schultz is a mutual friend to Mark Batchelor, a former footballer who alleged that Pistorius threatened to break his legs over an ex-girlfriend, and Jared Mortimer, a man with whom Oscar had a rift at a nightclub some months ago, during his routine court trial.
Mark Batchelor has been in court all through the long-running trial, while Mr Mortimer and Mr Schultz started attending the hearings this this on Monday, October 13, 2014, along with Pistorius’s former girlfriend Samantha Taylor, who gave account about Oscar’s history of violence and how he cheated on her.
Oscar Pistorius has escape a charge of murdering Reeva Steenkamp but had been convicted of culpable homicide, a judgement which shall likely be determined on Friday, October 17, 2014.
