On trial: Oscar Pistorius broke down in tears in court (Picture: AP)
The Oscar Pistorius murder trial had to be adjourned after the double-amputee broke down in tears describing the moment he realised he had shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The South African sprinter retched and sobbed uncontrollably on the witness stand as he spoke publicly for the first time about the details of last year’s Valentine’s Day shooting.
He took off his prosthetic legs and stood by the toilet door which he had fired into while recalling the ‘moment when everything changed’, telling the court in Pretoria he thought intruders had entered his house.
‘I got to the entrance of the bathroom at the end of the passage where I stopped screaming. At this point I was certain that the intruders were in the bathroom,’ he explained.
