Anger at Funeral for Slain Model Reeva Steenkamp


(Reuters) – A tearful funeral was held on Tuesday for model and law school graduate Reeva Steenkamp, with mourners calling for a harsh penalty for her boyfriend, Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius, who has been charged with her murder.

Steenkamp’s body was transported in a black hearse to a crematorium in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth for a private ceremony.

Pistorius was at a bail hearing in a Pretoria court on Tuesday, where a prosecutor said he fired four shots last week at a cowering Steenkamp through a bathroom door at his luxury home.

Pistorius’ lawyer said there was no murder case.
