Whoa: Carl Pistorius, brother of accused murderer Oscar, also facing homicide trial

South African journalists in the Twittersphere are buzzing late tonight over new revelations about the brother of paralympic champion and accused murderer Oscar Pistorius.

Turns out that his brother, Carl, has also been charged with homicide in the traffic death of a woman biker. Like famed sibling Oscar, Carl also claims it was all a horrible accident.

The trial has been postponed until next month.

What a mess.

In other Pistorius news, the family claims several of their Twitter accounts were hacked.

    Geez, does it run in this family? I don’t know anything about Carl’s defense, but it doesn’t look like Oscar’s got a leg to stand on.

    Haven’t even gotten to the trial and he’s already sprinted to the of the head of the OJ, Rodney King, Michael Jackson, Salem Witch Trials, Lizzie Borden, Lindbergh Baby and Kobe Bryant pack. I mean, the rich, famous, handicapped, model-dating, Olympic athlete is facing a murder charge. At the same time, so is brother. AT THE SAME TIME, so is the cop who is investigating him him! That’s just for starters
