NOT GUILTY PLEA: BLOOMBERG's Wild & Spillane reported the first witness heard “blood-curdling screams” from a woman in the early hours of the morning Steenkamp was shot. Pistorius "pleaded not guilty" Monday in the Pretoria High Court. Dressed in a black suit and tie, Pistorius stood as his lawyer, Barry Roux, "spelled out a case of accidental death." Roux read a statement from Pistorius in court which read, “There was no argument. I deny this allegation in the strongest terms because there was no argument” (BLOOMBERG, 3/3).
MEDIA CIRCUS: In London, Tom Peck reported the media circus outside the court "is fully formed." Satellite trucks, gazebos under which many of the world’s leading broadcast organizations have established temporary studios, and an entire set, on which construction was only finished. Pistorius’s uncle, Arnold Pistorius, who has become the family’s spokesperson, said in a statement that the family "would not be commenting on any more stories in the media" (INDEPENDENT, 3/1).
