Family members supporting Olympic runner in court story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Family members are standing behind South African track star and now accused murderer Oscar Pistorius.

The athlete cried openly Friday in court as prosecutors charged him with brutally murdering his girlfriend.

Family members say they dispute the charge, "in the strongest of terms."

Prosecutors, meanwhile, are calling it premeditated murder.

They say Pistorius shot his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, 4 times in his home on Thursday, including in the head, chest, and pelvis.

News of the shooting rocked South Africa, where Pistorius is hailed a national hero, after becoming the first double amputee to run in the Olympics.
