Court is back in session on the docket today new evidence in the case of the Olympic track star known as the blade runner.
He is now charged.
With premeditated murder in his girlfriend's death.
Initial reports suggested that Oscar historians might have shot his girlfriend read -- -- camp accidentally.
Perhaps mistaking her for an intruder on Valentine's Day.
But new evidence just emerging now casting serious new doubt on that claim joining me now.
Least we'll Fox News legal analyst and mark -- -- she's a former prosecutor now defense attorney.
All right -- a few things have come out since we debated this case last week let's talk about -- in order these number one.
They now there are reports now that they found steroids in his home.
And that this could have been a possible Roy region ranked number two.
That they found a bloody cricket -- it's sort of like a baseball bat.
And that her skull.
Had been crushed according to some reports -- -- -- -- a third one to look to get to the iPad but.
The second one and let's let's start with that it if they have a bloody cricket bat and -- -- question.
How how on earth does he make the defense that this was an intruder he he my stock.
I don't -- I don't Daley doesn't trigger that you mistaken maybe you fire one shot either -- there are four shots at bats against him as well.
And then you don't -- that person's head in -- -- -- mistaken kind of thing you know right away obviously but that's not the person you thought it was you know that's not an intruder so why would that that it just doesn't master of the evidence make it's really bad for him.
I I mean I've.
I'm not ready to move -- the iPad yet mark because if they have a cricket bat with her blood on it in her head is crashed in his.
Alleged we haven't heard from him directly but the reported defense he was -- about.
Lone intruder came in it's a dangerous area I had my gun I shot through the door.
That's -- That's a problem I'll say -- done nothing is done until it's done.
I would say it's problematic on the defense side but -- -- -- question whether the report is accurate because I don't see it yet.
Secondly I'd also want to know is there any scientific evidence linking him to that cricket panel.
Did he hold onto it.
Could the intruder this alleged intruder I -- but is that -- -- -- their eyes and stuff but you know could this alleged intruder have done something to his girlfriend.
Prior to I don't know going into the bathroom.
I don't know deliberately -- you -- But well OK but but but wait let me just jump in -- now now this is where the iPad comes in because -- story seems to be starting to come together.
Reportedly and -- -- with -- this is is all you know this is happening in South Africa so you know we're getting -- information from reports.
Local reports we don't know if it's accurate we don't we really don't you we don't know whether this is gonna pan out but the reports are that.
She got a text message on her iPad from another athlete.
Who she may or may not have had a relationship -- Some time in the wee hours of the evening and that when they found her body she was wearing her nightgown that there was an argument that people heard precede the shots.
And I mean -- Right and if you take that take the iPod which to me just brought up you take that -- the first -- -- talked about just a minute ago.
I'm in that you know that Britain that the Roy grades steroids you bring those two things together if he wasn't really on -- -- steroids.
And he saw those tax and apparently what what I've been understanding and again we're getting this you know.
It's kind of streaming in here.
Is that they did have a relationship in the past -- there may have been some jealousy there there's some motive there.
Also we have heard that he did have a history there are some girlfriends coming forward saying there's a quote unquote.
Darker side to him which we're going to be just -- -- discovery you put those things together you put those things together mark.
Again really bad.
That's up this week what I've heard so far about the previous incidents I've heard the same stuff but it's weak mark I have yet to see somebody come forward and say these guys an abuser.
And he abused me and even -- the police said that there have been other domestic incidents -- is all we don't know what that means involving home.
Was that were there any with Reebok you know we don't know but the stuff about the the bats and -- she got a text from another man in the wee hours of the evening.
And let's talk about the Nike -- an issue supposedly he mistook her for an intruder and he and she Shuster washing wearing your ninety mark.
Well there was -- door between them so we couldn't see was on the other side and you're -- just kind of got it right -- right out -- that note -- -- on one -- to accuse you -- This bit last year alone in South Africa they -- 161766.
He slut of a pistol by his bed at a machine -- by the window.
He'd be leave probably correctly that there could be an intruder coming at this moment any moments we have on heightened alert.
In the bathroom through the bathroom door and you've got to set it up like that through the bathroom -- -- -- -- fire and then you bring in the back on top of it.
Mark what is it go -- fat.
Where does he what that means you prosecuted cases mark you have to and now you're defense -- How do you get handed bat and he you've got it if it is the best that cricket that has her right on it and he shoots or through a bathroom door while she's in her nightgown.
Weather was -- -- after she got a text message from another -- are not aware Q how do you get out of that market.
It's problematic and it's one of those things to Jodi RS is trying to do it herself and in her trial you then can paint the picture is dead people don't tell tales and he comes up with some story that somehow fits whatever the physical evidence is but the whole thing about the Sarah just for 12 hoping about the steroids and that -- rate that would not go to whether he's guilty or not that would go to mitigating circumstances and that's -- -- yet indicated -- at Valhalla.
That he could say that was an I I'm playing defense lawyer for a second he could say that it as a mitigating circumstance but it would have nothing to do with whether or not he's found guilty of first degree I don't know -- -- is different she was.
Gonna give the next day she's gonna give a speech on empowering women.
And she was apparently out there on the speaking -- talking about abuse victims she had -- reportedly suffered a domestic abuse and another relationship.
And you know you guys know if it happens you -- relationship it can happen you again for for what ever reason this tend to be a pattern.
With with some folks even though they're very together and I don't know whether she was one of them or not but that.
At doesn't bode well for you arrogant left where we know very sadly those stats are correct me and I would think -- us and I should be you'll continue to follow as we get new information thanks.
