It's been a little while since we've heard anything about the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, and the last bit of news came from former lead investigator Hilton Botha speaking out on the case. Now, we're hearing that Oscar will actually be in court on Tuesday for a pretrial hearing.
And that he'll be REPRESENTING HIMSELF!
The Olympian's murder case, in which he's been charged with the killing of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, is set to move forward under Oscar's insistence that it was all in self defense. South African legal experts insist he's fighting an uphill battle.

Last week, Oscar Pistorius was granted the right to leave South Africa so he can compete in races, and considering that it was reported that he doesn't plan on competing anytime soon, his family just revealed that he's NOT training either.
The Paralympian's fam said that Oscar is "not back on any official training program" right now, but this might "change in the future."

Damn. Everything is going Oscar Pistorius' way!
After the Valentine's Day death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, the paralympian admitted to shooting and killing the model because he thought she was an intruder, but he DENIED murdering her, which has led him to be freed on bail.
And once he was let go on a measly $112,000 bond, the South African court confiscated his two passports so that he couldn't flee the country, but now, they're allowing him to leave South Africa in order to compete in races.
