Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius is currently in the middle of his trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, after he shot her to death in his bathroom in February last year Oscar claims that the shooting of Reeva was an accident, as he believed that she was actually an intruder who was trying to hide out in his bathroom.
During the course of the trial to date, it has already been claimed that Oscar Pistorius has vomited, as he began to retch while hearing the autopsy report on Reeva Steenkamp. While it seems that things have repeated themselves a little bit, as it has now been claimed that Oscar Pistorius has again vomited, as a picture of Reeva Steenkamp's body was accidentally shown to the court.
The screens in the court room were showing rapid images of the scene of the murder, including the bloodied bathroom and Oscar Pistorius blood stained prosthetics, when a picture of Reeva Steenkamp's body appeared, producing winces from the court room, while Oscar threw up. The screen directly in front of Pistorius was then switched off to prevent him from seeing any more of the bloody images.
It was not only Oscar Pistorius who was affected by the bloody images though, as Desi Myers, who is the mother of a close friend and former room-mate of Reeva Steenkamp Gina Myers, had already decided to walk out of the court as the images were too much for her, breaking down in tears as grim pictures of Pistorius's bathroom covered in blood were shown to the court.
The case continues.
