OSCAR PISTORIUS' BROTHER Facing Charges of HOMICIDE

Oscar and Carl Pistorius



Oscar Pistorius' older brother faces up to 15 YEARS in the slammer for allegedly killing a female biker during a fatal car crash -- this according to new reports. 

Carl Pistorius has been charged with culpable homicide -- according to eNCA news, a South African TV channel -- stemming from a car crash in 2010, in which prosecutors say his reckless driving led to the death a motorcyclist.

His lawyer Kenny Oldwage, who also represents Oscar Pistorius, confirmed the charges today. Carl Pistorius appeared in court just two days before his brother's bail hearing last week, according to the Daily Mail.

According to the BBC, police conducted tests on Carl Pistorius' blood at the time of the accident, and he was found not to have been drinking alcohol. 



Carl's lawyer recently told the station that Carl "deeply regrets the accident," but was adamant his client was not drunk at the the time of the collision, adding, "There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court." 

According to reports, Carl's trial was set to begin last Thursday -- the same day his brother Oscar (who is facing a charge of premeditated murder in the death of Reeva Steemkamp) was freed on bail -- but it was postponed until next month.
