The brother of embattled Paralympian Oscar Pistorius has been cleared of culpable homicide.

Carl Pistorius was accused of killing a female biker, Maria Barnard, during a fatal car crash in 2008, but was acquitted in court in Vanderbijlpark, South Africa, on Tuesday (21May13).

His lawyer says, "We are satisfied with the outcome and Carl is also happy to see the end of this case."

The 28 year old's sibling Oscar, nicknamed Blade Runner, hit headlines across the world in February (13) when his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, was shot dead at his home in Pretoria on Valentine's Day (14Feb13). He was charged with premeditated murder and is due back in court next month (Jun13).
