Pistorius trial restarts after 17 days

  • Prosecutor Gerrie Nel asked for a break in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial and the judge supported since the trial has been extended. The whole thing was initially supposed to take only three weeks, according to media reports. 

    The BBC reported that the first one to testify today said that Pistorius didn't take his girlfriend's death well and quoted him saying: "I shot Reeva. I thought she was an intruder. Please come back."

    Reports also indicate that one psychologist is expected to testify and the defense could summon up to 17 witnesses. On another note, a columnist recently mentioned that Pistorius prepared for the trial by taking acting lessons.
