Exclusive Tonight: Reeva Steenkamp's cousin on her life, and death

Tonight, Reeva Steenkamp's cousin, Kim Martin, sits down exclusively with Piers Morgan to remember and honor Steenkamp's life as well as try to put together the pieces of her death.

Oscar Pistorius' lawyer read out the athlete's affidavit in court Tuesday, explaining Pistorius thought Steenkamp was an intruder when he heard noises in the toilet room. The host asks Martin if she thought this version of events was plausible.

"That is what, in my heart, I hope and wish is the truth," Martin begins. "Because I would not like to think my cousin suffered. I don't want to think that she was scared or that she was frightened or that she was fearful for her life. I don't want to think that."

Steenkamp will wait for judgement from the court because "at the end of the day we'll find out the truth," she says. "But I believe that Reeva's life, and her death, is not in vain."

Pistorius appeared in court Wednesday as the defense and prosecution laid out their cases. The judge adjourned the hearing without making a decision if Pistorius should be granted bail. A decision is expected to be made tomorrow when the hearing resumes at 11 a.m. local time.

Tune in this evening at 9 to hear Kim Martin remember her cousin's life and the career that was only just beginning.

Thursday: Former President Jimmy Carter

Tomorrow evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," former President Jimmy Carter returns to the program in an hour-long interview to discuss gun control, his take on the previously predictable electoral demographic turnout and his namesake foundation’s upcoming silent auction.

Piers Morgan will certainly ask the gun-owning Carter for his opinion on the gun control debate and will look for solutions to combat gun violence in America. Renowned for his mediation abilities, Carter will build on his previous discussion with Morgan regarding the Middle East.

Just last January Carter told Morgan he wished he had a "closer relationship" with President Barack Obama. We'll find out where that relationship stands and how he sees the Democratic Party as we look towards the 2016 election.

This will be Carter’s second appearance on the program, the first in January 2012. Tune in Thursday at 9:00 p.m. as Morgan and Carter look to further the debate on guns and the discussion on both domestic and foreign policy.

For more information on the Carter Center’s live and silent auction being held Saturday, Feb. 23 you can visit www.cartercenter.org.
