South African track star Oscar Pistorius has made his first court appearence since being granted bail in February over the killing of his girlfriend.
The pre-trial hearing in Pretoria Tuesday was brief, with the magistrate agreeing to postpone the proceedings until August 19. Lawyers had asked for more time to prepare for the case.
Pistorious is facing murder charges for shooting and killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, at his home in Pretoria on February 14.
Pistorius, known as the "blade runner" for his carbon-fiber legs, has admiting shooting Steenkamp but insists he mistook her for an intruder.
Pistorius became an inspirational hero to millions as the first double amputee to compete against able-bodied competitors at the London Olympics last year.
