Private funeral planned for Reeva Steenkamp on Tuesday

2/17/2013

The family of Reeva Steenkamp says her body is back in her hometown of Port Elizabeth and a private funeral has been planned for Tuesday.
   
Adam Steenkamp, the late model and law graduate's brother, says ``Reeva is back home.''
   
The family said today that Steenkamp, who was shot dead inside boyfriend Oscar Pistorius' house early Thursday, will be cremated in a ceremony closed to the public and the media in the city on South Africa's southern coast.
   
Pistorius was charged with her murder and is expected to make a court appearance on Tuesday for his bail hearing.
   
The 29-year-old Reeva was seen laughing and smiling on South African television Saturday night after national broadcaster SABC chose to air the first episode of a reality TV show she featured in.
