PRETORIA, South Africa— Double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius has arrived early at a courthouse in South Africa’s capital for a bail hearing in the killing of his girlfriend.

Police say they will press a charge of premeditated murder against the 26-year-old athlete. Pistorius’ family says police evidence will show there should be no murder charge.

Police arrived at Pistorius’ home in the early hours of Valentine’s Day and found the body of Reeva Steenkamp, 29, with four bullet wounds. They were responding to neighbors’ calls about shouting and gunshots. A 9 mm pistol was recovered.

Journalists watched Pistorius, head covered with a hoodie, leave the police station and arrive at the back entrance to the courthouse in Pretoria, before 7 a.m. (0900 GMT).
