Jeffrey Toobin and Mark Geragos debate the odds of accused murderer Oscar Pistorius being granted bail.
Kenny Kunene, a friend of Oscar Pistorius, speaks out about the death of model Reeva Steenkamp.
Forensic scientist Lawrence Kobilinsky explains why the trajectory of the bullets will be crucial in the track star's murder trial.
On AC360, Reeva Steenkamp's brother, Adam, shares memories of his sister and talks about how his family is coping with her tragic death.
"My sister was a beautiful woman outwardly, and even more so inwardly," he tells CNN's Jake Tapper. "She brought people together...she was the glue that held us together at certain points." He says she'll be remembered for her empathy and selflessness.
Journalist Lynn Sweet describes the scene in court when former Rep. Jackson Jr. and his wife pleaded guilty to federal charges related to misusing campaign funds from 2005 to 2012. He could be sentenced up to five years behind bars.
"They both had in court a big display of support from their families, and they'll need it," Sweet tells CNN's Jake Tapper. She says the former Illinois Congressman looked pained and was teary-eyed when he admitted his guilt to the judge.
"What we had here was a scheme and a scam that went on for seven years," Sweet says about the former representative's crime, which went on for longer than most expected. "Trips to Costco, undergarments, toilet paper, and lavish expenses for a health club, trips - it just is a tragic downfall...it got them caught up in a lifestyle they could not afford." The couple also used the money for Michael Jackson memorabilia and a Rolex watch.
Reeva Steenkamp's family is mourning the loss of the former model who was shot to death in the home of her boyfriend, Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius. Tonight Steenkamp's brother, Adam, reflects on his sister's life and talks about what he and other relatives knew about the type of relationship she had with Pistorius.
"She wanted to make a difference," he tells CNN's Jake Tapper. "She started by making small steps in that right direction." Steenkamp says Reeva, who graduated from law school, wanted to help with the issue of violence against women in South Africa.
Pistorius became an inspirational figure for overcoming his disability and achieving record success as a Paralympic competitor. In the affidavit read by his lawyer in court, Pistorius claims he thought Steenkamp was an intruder and never meant to harm her. The charges against him were upgraded to premeditated murder this week.
Criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and former Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Marcia Clark discuss Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius' affidavit claiming he never intended to kill his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Read the text of Pistorius' affidavit:
I, the undersigned, Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius, do hereby make oath and state:
I am an adult male and a South African citizen with identity number [identity number redacted].
I am the Applicant in this application in which I seek relief from this Honourable Court to be released on bail. I respectfully submit, as I will demonstrate herein, that the interests of justice permit my release on bail. In any event, the dictates of fairness and justice in view of the peculiar facts herein warrant that I should not be deprived of my liberty and that I should be released on bail.
Like a scene out of a movie, eight masked men divided in two cars made a bold arrival through the perimeter fence of Brussels Airport for a fast and extraordinary robbery. The airport's spokesman said it took just minutes for the heavily armed group to get away with precious cargo – $50 million in rough and polished diamonds.
Despite airport security regulations, the thieves' plan to pilfer the jewels from a plane headed to Zurich, Switzerland went off without a hitch. No shots were fired and no one was injured. They carried out the heist about 25 miles from Antwerp, a heavily monitored city known as the world's diamond-cutting capital.
How did the robbers know about the diamonds? How were they able to choreograph the timing? Did the passengers on the plane know what was happening? And do the police have any clues?
