Pretoria - Murder accused Oscar Pistorius pressed his hands over his eyes on Tuesday when a ballistic expert detailed the fatal wounds his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp suffered last year.
Steenkamp's mother June began crying as the murder trial of paralympian continued in the High Court in Pretoria.
She was comforted by a member of the ANC Women's League sitting next to her.
Prosecutor Gerrie Nel was questioning Captain Chris Mangena about his role in the investigation into Steenkamp's death.
“There was a bruise on the chest of the deceased... but the projectile did not penetrate the chest,” Mangena said, as Nel asked him about the sequence of post mortem photographs in a file in front of him.
