"A date has been set for the trial of South African athlete Oscar Pistorius for the premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at a hearing at Pretoria magistrates' court," BBC reported.
"The prosecutor in the case said the dates of 3 to 20 March had been mutually agreed for the trial," it said.
A copy of the indictment was given to Pistorius by the prosecution.
He was granted bail on Feb 22 this year.
Pistorius has admitted shooting dead Steenkamp, 29, while she was in the bathroom of his home on Feb 14.
He claimed he mistook her for an intruder and denied a charge of premeditated murder.
