Pistorius bail decision in girlfriend's murder expected 7:30aET today – Robyn Curnow reports


Pretoria, South Africa (CNN) - South African prosecutors pushed Friday to keep Oscar Pistorius behind bars, painting the double-amputee track star as a killer offering an improbable defense in the shooting death of his model girlfriend.

The picture offered by the prosecution came during the fourth day of a bail hearing that has been remarkable for not only its length but its allegations of miscues by a lead police investigator who himself faces attempted murder charges.

Prosecutors are trying to keep Pistorius jailed pending his trial on a charge of premeditated murder in the February 14 shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp, 29.

And this morning, CNN reported that we can expect a decision from the magistrate in the Pistorius case at 7:30a Eastern. CNN will carry it live.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Robyn Curnow reports on the latest in the Pistorius bail hearing.
