Former police officer testifies on crime scene


A former police officer was called to testify on Thursday about the crime scene in Oscar Pistorius’s home, as the athlete’s murder trail continued in the High Court in Pretoria.

Before ex-colonel Gert van Rensburg was called to the stand, prosecutor Gerrie Nel addressed Judge Thokozile Masipa.

He told her all images of Pistorius’s girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp had been taken out of the presentation that would follow.

Pistorius retched earlier when photos of Steenkamp’s body, taken at the scene of the crime, were accidentally flashed on screens around the court room.

Pistorius is accused of the premeditated murder of model and law graduate Steenkamp in his home on February 14 last year.

He is also charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and two counts of discharging a firearm in public.

Pistorius has denied guilt on all the charges
