Bent over, with his hands covering his ears, Oscar Pistorius reacted emotionally Thursday to gruesome testimony about the death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, whom he is accused of murdering.
The detailed descriptions came from a neighbor who rushed over to Pistorius' home in Pretoria, South Africa, moments after the early morning shooting on Valentine's Day last year, the Associated Press reported.
"It was obvious that she was mortally wounded," Johan Stipp testified. "At the bottom of the stairs ... there was a lady lying on her back on the floor."
Stipp, who is a radiologist, said the 29-year-old Steenkamp had wounds to her right thigh, her upper arm and the right side of her head, where there was brain tissue around the skull.
