She had been shot four times in the head, chest and arm. A 9mm pistol was found at the scene.
Appearing today in court in Pretoria, Pistorius wept as prosecutors said they would pursue a charge of premeditated murder.
An application for bail was postponed until next Tuesday and the athlete will remain in police custody.
