  • PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius was granted bail Friday, paving the way for him to be freed from custody pending his trial in the Valentine’s Day shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

    Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair made the ruling Friday after four days of arguments from prosecution and defense in Pistorius’ bail hearing, and after spending about one hour and 45 minutes announcing his decision.

    Nair said Pistorius’ affidavit, in which he gave his version of the events of the shooting on morning of Feb. 14 in a sworn statement, had helped his application for bail in Pretoria Magistrate’s Court.
