Johannesburg - The family of athlete Oscar Pistorius says the South African runner has been spending time with people who were close to the girlfriend he shot and killed in February.

A statement from the family of the double-amputee Olympian also said on Thursday that Pistorius has spent that time in "surroundings where shared memories were created."

The statement indicates Pistorius is interacting more with people outside his uncle Arnold's home in Pretoria, where he has been staying since he was released on bail in February.

Pistorius has been charged with murder in the Valentine's Day killing of Reeva Steenkamp.

He called the killing an accident, saying he thought he was firing at an intruder through a bathroom door.

His next scheduled court appearance is 4 June.
