The 26-year-old South African — the first Paralympian to appear at the Olympics — is accused of shooting Reeva Steenkamp, 30, in the head, chest and arm at 4am (2am UK time) today.

There were suggestions that model Steenkamp was gunned down as she attempted to play a Valentine’s Day surprise on her athlete lover.

But police said there had been previous incidents at the address described as “allegations of a domestic nature”. Brigadier Denise Beukes said police were “very surprised” by the burglar suggestion.
