[February 16, 2013]  JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- South Africa's national broadcaster says it will screen a reality TV show Saturday featuring a model who was the girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius. She was shot and killed Thursday at the home of the double-amputee athlete.

In a statement Saturday, SABC confirms it will air the "Tropika Island of Treasure" program "which features the late Reeva Steenkamp."

Pistorius has been arrested and charged with the Valentine's Day murder of Steenkamp, who was shot multiple times in the predawn hours at Pistorius' house in a gated community in the South African capital, Pretoria.

The show's executive producer, Samantha Moon, tells The Associated Press that Steenkamp's family wants the show to go ahead.

Moon says that the family "wants it on." She added: "This is how they want to remember her."
