READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
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.
