They said Pistorius armed himself, attached his prosthetic legs and walked seven meters before shooting Reeva Steenkamp, who came to spend the night, through the bathroom doors. They said that he shot her four times.
The court appearance comes on the same day as her funeral in Port Elizabeth. The prosecution is pursuing a charge of intended murder against pistorius. His lawyers said that Pistorius mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, while others said that she was beaten with a cricket bat before being shot multiple times.
