OK! News: Day 8 of The Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial - A Breakdown

1. For the second day, Pistorius' attorney cross-examined a police witness who was brought to the stand by the prosecution to prove that, after shooting and killing Steenkamp through a bathroom door, Pistorius knocked down the door with a cricket bat while on his stumps, and not on his prosthetics, as he has insisted.

2.) To support his theory, the defense attorney called up gruesome photos from the scene of the crime, which made Pistorius so physically upset, he vomited in court for the second time this week.

3.) After a scheduled break, testimony was heard (in Afrikaans, through a translator) by Gen. G.S. van Rensburg of the South African Police. He was walked through police photographs of the crime scene. At this point Pistorius looked fairly relaxed, as graphic photos had been removed following his reaction earlier in the day.
