PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius allegedly made a “sinister” comment to a woman at his murder trial when it adjourned for the day.
It allegedly was to a friend of Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius’ girlfriend whom he shot to death last year.
Pistorius told reporters in the courtroom that he did not say to Kim Myers, “How can you sleep at night?”
A lawyer for the Myers family, who were close to Steenkamp, told The Associated Press that Myers told him Pistorius had made the comment to her “in a very sinister way.” Myers has been present for much of the trial. A reporter also says he overheard the remark from the athlete.
Lawyer Ian Levitt said he had contacted court officials. He said Myers told him she did not know what the comment referred to and she is “shocked.”
