Johannesburg: Olympian Oscar Pistorius’ brother is facing culpable homicide charge for the death of a woman in 2008.

According to media reports, Carl Pistorius was allegedly involved in a crash with a woman motorcyclist and was supposed to be in court last Thursday - a day before Oscar was granted bail by a Pretoria Court.

His trial is now set for the end of March.

Oscar Pistorius was charged with premeditated murder, but the athlete says he killed his girlfriend accidentally, opening fire after mistaking her for an intruder in his home.
