Murder Trial Update: Oscar Pistorius Throws Up In Court As Pathologist Recounts Reeva Steenkamp’s Injuries



Oscar Pistorius vomited in the dock today as the pathologist who performed the post-mortem on Reeva Steenkamp gave a graphic account of her injuries. The Paralympian retched and heaved as Professor Gert Saayman gave graphic testimony about the multiple bullet wounds he admits inflicting on his girlfriend. The judge had earlier banned live broadcasting and tweeting of evidence by Prof Gert Saayman after prosecutor Gerrie Nel argued the testimony would have an ‘explicitly graphic nature’. Prof Saayman said the ‘very personal nature’ of his autopsy findings as well as graphic details about the injuries could also ‘compromise the dignity of the deceased’.
