Pistorius in tears

Pretoria: Oscar Pistorius buried his head in his hands and wiped away tears after a South African court on Tuesday heard grisly details of the killing of his girlfriend, the first sign of emotion from the track star in his two-day murder trial.

Pistorius has been largely impassive during the trial for the murder of law graduate Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year.

The court heard from a neighbour, Estelle van der Merwe, who testified that she heard what sounded like an argument early on the morning Steenkamp was killed.

“From where I was sitting it seemed like two people were having an argument but I couldn't hear the other person’s voice,” she said.
