Welcome to our live page following events at court in Pretoria, in South Africa, as the Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius returns to find out today if he will be granted bail after being charged with the premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
If denied bail, the sprinter could face months in jail before a full trial is held later this year.
But in an unexpected turn of events, it has emerged Detective Hilton Botha who is leading the murder case against Mr Pistorius is facing seven charges of attempted murder, police have confirmed.
Detective Botha has given evidence against Mr Pistorius during his bail hearing this week, and is himself scheduled to appear in court in May.
Mr Pistorius's bail hearing application continues today, but our correspondent Andrew Harding says that with the various delays, we may not get a decision until tomorrow.
Mr Pistorius denies the premeditated murder of his Miss Steenkamp, who was 29.
Yesterday, the magistrate overseeing the hearing appeared to question Det Botha's assertion that Mr Pistorius could be a flight risk and should be denied bail.
So far in Thursday's hearing - which is currently paused for a lunch break - prosecutor Gerrie Nel confirmed to the court that Det Botha was facing seven attempted murder charges.
