PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius (pihs-TOHR'-ee-uhs) has been charged with murdering his girlfriend. Police say she was shot four times in his home in South Africa. Media outlets in that country have been reporting that his girlfriend may have been trying to surprise Pistorius for Valentine's Day and he could have mistaken her for an intruder breaking into his home. But police say those reports did not come from them.
