'Blade runner' Pistorius weeps in court over murder charges – CNN's Errol Barnett reports


Pretoria, South Africa (CNN) - South African sports icon Oscar Pistorius wept uncontrollably Friday when a judge charged him in the killing of his girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

Pistorius' body shook, his head buried in his hands, as he appeared in court over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, who was found at his home Thursday in an upscale Pretoria neighborhood.

The 26-year-old, nicknamed "Blade Runner," for his Olympic debut last year with artificial legs, was arrested the same day.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Errol Barnett reports on Pistorius's court appearance.
