Day 6 of Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial: He Vomits in Court
The second week of Oscar Pistorius‘ murder trial began this morning, and it was yet another tough day for the defendant. Pistorius became so upset during the proceedings that he actually became physically ill. A few updates from today:
1. The first expert testimony was heard today, as pathologist Geert Sayman explained the nitty gritty details of the autopsy on victim Reeva Steenkamp.
2.Pistorius did not react well to those details. He repeatedly covered his head and ears, even sticking his fingers in so he wouldn’t have to hear. He audibly retched and eventually vomited, interrupting Sayman’s testimony.
3. Though the trial has been televised up to this point, Judge Thokozile Masipa ordered a media blackout of this particular testimony. He wouldn’t allow reporters to live tweet, either.
