The family lawyer of Oscar Pistorius says his brother is facing a culpable homicide charge in a 2010 road death.

Lawyer Kenny Oldwage would not confirm details of the case Carl Pistorius is facing.

Local media reported that Carl Pistorius was allegedly involved in a crash with a woman motorcyclist and that he was to face trial last Thursday, as his brother Oscar was facing a bail hearing.

Oscar Pistorius was released on bail on Friday and is staying with an uncle.
