Looking tense and somber in a grey suit, blue shirt and tie, the 26-year-old Paralympian dubbed the “Blade Runner” briefly appeared in court for the first time since being released on bail over the murder that shattered his hero image.

In a macabre coincidence, his next court appearance will fall on the same day that his slain lover would have turned 30. The hearing inside the packed courtroom lasted only a few minutes as prosecutors sought, and defence agreed to, a postponement to allow police to complete their probe.
