MURDER-ACCUSED athlete Oscar Pistorius had last-minute consultations with his legal team to prepare for the next phase of his bail application at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday morning.
He is charged with shooting dead his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine's Day.
He arrived earlier in a police car from cells at the Brooklyn police station, a blue towel covering his head.
In addition to the bail application, his lawyers would also have to make a new application to keep him at the police holding cells instead of a prison, with last week's order to that effect expiring on Wednesday.
His family was already inside the court, his brother Carl, a likeness of the international athlete, and his sister Aimee among them.
