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.
