Oscar Pistorius gives describes details before and after girlfriends death
Today, Oscar Pistorius described in detail - the moments just before and after he shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp to death.
The para-olympic athlete testified that he heard sounds of what he thought was an intruder in the bathroom.
He says his room was dark - so he grabbed his gun from under his bed - and went back towards the bathroom without his prosthetic legs.
He says - he called out to Steenkamp three times - with no response.
He says he was convinced a burglar was coming out of the bathroom towards him - so he pulled the trigger.
He broke down on the stand as he described the moment he realized it was his girlfriend.
"I saw the keys and I unlocked the door and I threw it open and I sat over Reeva and I cried. I don't know, I don't know how long I was there for. She wasn't breathing!"
Pistorius will be back on the stand for what is expected to be another emotional day of testimony, tomorrow.
