Pretoria: The High Court here yesterday saw a cricket bat and toilet door come into effect during the high-profile murder trial of South African double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius.
Forensic investigator Lt. Col Johannes Vermeulen, used the items as props and testified that it indicated that Pistorius was not wearing his prosthetic legs when he fired four shots through the bathroom door and smashed it in with the bat on the night of Feb 14 last year.
Defense lawyer Barry Roux argued Pistorius' claim that he put on his prosthetic legs after firing the shots and then bashed down the door. Pistorius is charged with the premeditated murder of model Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius however, continues to plead not guilty.
