JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South Africa's national broadcaster says it will screen a reality TV show featuring the dead model girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius, two days after she was shot and killed 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 of Thursday 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. This is how they want to remember her."
