A trial date is expected to be set when paralympian Oscar Pistorius appears in court next week.

A trial date is expected to be set when paralympian Oscar Pistorius appears in court next week, The New Age newspaper reported today.

"For now, we are hoping to have the indictment ready [by next Monday]. At the next court appearance a trial date will be announced," National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Medupe Simasiku told the newspaper.

"We hope to know the status of the indictment from the police by Wednesday, at the latest. Only when the indictment is ready will a trial date be announced," he reportedly said.

Simasiku told Sapa he’d have a clearer picture on Wednesday of what could be expected in court.

Pistorius is accused of the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, at his home in Pretoria on 14 February.

He’s expected to appear in court on Monday, 19 August.
