Police Captain Francois Moller explained that 90% of the messages between Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp were loving and typical of a couple, but there were a few that hinted at Pistorius' jealous, violent nature. "I'm scared of you sometimes, of how you snap at me," she wrote. She also complained when he accused her of flirting with another man: "I was not flirting with anyone today and I feel sick that you suggested that."

OK! News: Was there police misconduct in the Oscar Pistorius case?

The messages certainly don't help Pistorius' case. They suggest that there was indeed strife in the relationship, and that Pistorius could easily fly off the handle. Previous testimony in the trial has shown that Pistorius wrongly discharged firearms on at least two other occasions, once with a friend and once with an ex-girlfriend when he was angry.

What do you think of this most recent development in the trial? Do you think Pistorius is guilty of premeditated murder? Have you been following the trial closely? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
