Oscar Pistorius Trial : ` Reeva Steenkamp was Shot in Rapid Fire Differing from Police Ballistics '

#AceWorldNews – PRETORIA – SOUTH AFRICA – April 16 – (BBC) – The girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius was shot in quick succession as she fell down, a forensics expert has told the South African athlete’s murder trial.

This differs from a police ballistics witness who said there was short break between the first and second shots.

Mr Pistorius denies intentionally killing Ms Steenkamp in early hours of Valentine’s Day last year.

He says he fired rapidly in fear through the toilet door after he mistook Ms Steenkamp for an intruder.

The prosecution says the 29-year-old model and law graduate was deliberately killed after the couple had an argument.

The double amputee Olympic and Paralympic athlete faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder.

The trial has been adjourned until Thursday, which will be the last day before a break; proceedings will resume on Monday 5 May.
