Prosecutor Gerrie Nel continued to break Pistorius down, finding every fault in his retelling of events from Valentine's Day 2013, when Pistorius fatally shot Steenkamp through the bathroom door of their home. "You're trying to cover up for lies," he grilled him, then taunted his weepy reaction. "Why would this question make you emotional?" He also once again brought out the photo of Steenkamp's bloody head after the gunshots.

"I've taken responsibility but I will not look at a picture that I'm tormented by what I saw and felt that night," Pistorius said angrily. "As I picked Reeva up my fingers touched her head. I remember! I don't have to look at a picture. I was there!" He was finally too exhausted and sad to continue, and the judge adjourned for the day. Let's see how Pistorius continues to hold up under the pressures of this murder trial in the weeks to come.
