SOUTH AFRICA - The bail hearing for Olympian Oscar Pistorius has been postponed.

Pistorius was arrested yesterday in South Africa and charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend.

Pistorius is the double amputee who made Olympic history competing at the London summer games last year.

Police say Pistorius shot and killed his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home.

It's not clear what sparked the shooting, but police say they had received calls in the past about domestic altercations.

Pistorius' bail hearing has been postponed until Tuesday when prosecutors will argue that he committed premediated murder.
