Oscar Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend. Model Reeva Steenkamp was shot at the athlete's home.

(Tomlinson) "She was the kindest most unbelievable girl."

Steenkamp's publicist Sarit Tomlinson says the couple had a fabulous relationship. Police say there had been previous domestic incidents at Pistorius's home.

He's a national hero in South Africa. And last summer he became the first double amputee to compete on the track at an Olympic games.
