Carl Pistorius, brother of the famed Paralympian who allegedly beat and shot his girlfriend to death, is facing his own criminal charges of killing a woman.
Eyewitness News reports Carl is charged with "culpable homicide" stemming from a collision that killed a female motorcyclist in 2008, and "the victimâ€™s family said they believed it was more than just an accident."
Carl's alleged crime is less gruesome than that of brother Oscar "Blade Runner" Pistorius â€” who cops believe crushed Reeva Steenkamp's skull with a cricket bat and then shot her dead in his home on Valentine's Day â€” but the revelation that two Pistorius brothers stand accused of killing women adds a shocking twist to an already sensational story.
Carl joined other Pistorius family members in attending Oscar's court proceedings last week. Oscar is out on bail.
