CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Prosecutors accusing Oscar Pistorius of premeditated murder will add two more charges believed to relate to firing guns in public to the indictment against him, apparently to show another side to the inspiring double-amputee Olympian: Reckless and trigger-happy. Pistorius now faces charges of murder, illegal possession of ammunition and two other counts of breaking South Africas firearms laws in his trial in March. Pistorius lawyers received a letter on Tuesday advising them that the two charges, already raised against Pistorius, would be added to the indictment served on the athlete in August, National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Nathi Mncube told The Associated Press. Pistorius lawyers failed in an initial application opposing the inclusion of the two charges in his murder trial but can "take the matter up" again, Mncube said. Mncube said the additional charges were not in the original indictment because they are alleged to have occurred in the Johannesburg region, a different court jurisdiction to Pistorius fatal shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his villa in a gated estate in the South African capital, Pretoria, in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14. Prosecutors had to seek permission from South Africas new National Director of Public Prosecutions to "centralize" all the charges, Mncube said, so they all could be heard in the same trial at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria. "The National Director has indeed given them (prosecutors) that authority and they will be added," Mncube said. "They are not new charges, they were charges that already existed. They were just in a different jurisdiction." Pistorius murder trial is due to start Mar. 3 and the 26-year-old disabled runner faces a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years in prison if he is convicted on the main charge of premeditated murder in the killing of Steenkamp on Valentines Day. Mncube declined to detail the charges being added, only saying there were two counts and they covered "the contravention of the firearms control act." The South African media has reported that Pistorius has twice shot a gun in a public place: One time out of a moving car when he was driving with a former girlfriend and another at a restaurant in Johannesburg when he apparently accidentally fired a friends gun under a table while admiring it. Pistorius spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess told the AP that the Pistorius family did not want to comment on "legal aspects" of the case. But Mncube said Pistorius lawyers had argued against him being charged and tried in a Pretoria court for alleged offences that occurred in Johannesburg. "They are not saying he cant be charged for those, they are saying he cant be charged in a different jurisdiction," Mncube said. Mncubes National Prosecuting Authority would not comment on any of the details surrounding the two charges to be added, but people who are believed to have been present at those incidents were included in the prosecutions list of more than 100 trial witnesses when Pistorius was indicted two months ago. Pistorius denies murder and says he shot Steenkamp in self-defence through a toilet cubicle door with his licensed 9mm handgun, thinking mistakenly that she was a dangerous intruder in his house. Prosecutors say he intended to kill her, possibly after a loud argument in the middle of the night. Bill Walton Jersey

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls have made two trades to clear salary-cap space, setting the stage for the addition of free-agent centre Pau Gasol. The Bulls sent forward Anthony Randolph, two second-round draft picks and cash considerations to Orlando for the rights to Milovan Rakovic. Randolph was acquired in a draft-night trade with Denver that gave the Bulls the rights to high-sccoring Creighton forward Doug McDermott.dddddddddddd Chicago also traded forward Greg Smith to Dallas on Monday for the rights to Tadija Dragicevic. The Bulls signed Smith in April after he was waived by Houston, but he never appeared in a game with Chicago. The pair of moves helps make room for Gasol, who announced over the weekend that he planned to join the Bulls. ' ' '
