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!
