All in the family the parents must be proud.
A busy week in court for -- this story -- Brothers Carl the story is the brother of the blade runner accused.
Girlfriend killer Oscar -- stories today.
Pleaded not guilty in his own culpable homicide trial.
Prosecutors accuse the brother Carl the stories of negligence in a crash that killed a woman on a motorcycle back -- -- wait.
-- the story is the brother denies that he caused the crash.
And denies he was under the influence of alcohol.
His brother Oscar was not in court of course Oscar -- stories the blade runner faces murder charges in South Africa he's accused of brutally killing his own girlfriend.
He claims he thought she was an intruder.
His lawyers reportedly set to protest Oscars bail conditions tomorrow.
Defense attorney Heather Hanson joins us here you know it's a lot to process here the brother this was a car -- a motorcycle crash or something.
That's exactly right in 2008 the brother was in a car accident with a motorcycle there were charges filed then dropped been rethought.
And that's what the -- going on right now -- filed after the whole thing happened with the blade runner that's exactly right they said that they came across new -- -- evidence but they are trying to -- experts that the judge today said that they could not call for I don't know what new evidence they're going to introduce an -- not far away from this thing really getting going with the blade runner -- the story that's exactly right they have the same defense attorney and how does that happen.
I it's a family defense attorney and I've read the transcript of much of the trial today he's very good at what -- left -- he has to be at the bail hearing tomorrow.
So originally there was going to be some conflict there because the brothers' trial was supposed to be today and tomorrow.
They've put off the second day of the brothers' trial until next week so that he's going to be able to be there for Oscars bail hearing tomorrow.
And none none of these well the Brothers not incarcerated and he's not.
But Oscar is still there waiting for word on bail.
He know he's he's had -- but -- -- he has to stay in South Africa part of what he wants tomorrow if he wants to be able to leave South Africa -- to -- with passport.
He wants to be able to drink alcohol.
He ought to be able to meet with neighbors and his neighborhood and if I -- his attorney that would be what I would be arguing must strongly because he should have the right to meet with potential witnesses probably do adelphia alcohol as -- -- probably.
-- hit the the argument that he makes that he thought she was intruder it is.
Well it's hard to make.
It's going to be hard to make that trial's gonna start in June and between now in June I think that if -- Oscars attorney you're getting experts with regard to.
The angle of the gun -- wounds because he claims that he did not have his -- on until after the gunshot was fired.
I think the angle of that it's going to be very very -- well we already know what that evidence is the the predicted trajectory of the bullet is on the downward slope they're gonna have to get experts to say that he.
Somehow lifted his arm and ordered him to make that firing and ended the light in the room I mean there's a lot of -- that that's why there's some time I'm in that trial doesn't start until June.
The Brothers trials -- supposed to be two days and that should be coming next week but they're getting an extension here doesn't look like from my research it's gonna be all that difficult with Syrian defense attorney and all the rest well that's right I mean the judge has allowed -- -- another reason for that but the judge has allowed the second day of the brothers' trial to be next Wednesday.
Culpable homicide and negligent killing that's the charge in South Africa for the brother.
That's right -- it's really interesting because the woman on the motorcycle was doing what it's called the poker run.
There -- five stops on this poker run at -- stops at a different cart and he and at the end date whoever had the best hand wins the -- run at some sort of organized.
-- thing -- at each stop there's also alcohol offered.
Who so that -- came into evidence today it was a really interesting day in court I think that the the stories attorney get a really good job in establishing that there may have been some culpability on that -- with regard to the fact that so it's a pub crawl.
-- Poker and bike mechanic bikes.
That sounds like that that's something I brought up a lot of fun and all right thank you thank you.
