PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius (pihs-TOHR'-ee-uhs) has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend. Police say model Reeva Steenkamp was shot inside the Olympic runner's home in South Africa. A police spokesperson says there have been "previous incidents" at Pistorius' home, but South African media have been speculating that it may have been an accident. Pistorius made history at the London Olympics when he became the first double-amputee runner to compete.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A postseason appearance in his second full season as the Vikings coach has earned Leslie Frazier a contract extension through 2014. The Vikings exercised the fourth-year option on his contract, helping Frazier avoid what would have been a lame-duck season in 2013 while also giving the team some flexibility going forward.
