Pistorius 'broken' after shooting girlfriend

PRETORIA - South African athlete Oscar Pistorius "was broken" after shooting his girlfriend, his neighbour has said, as the murder trial resumed after a two-week break.

Johan Stander was the first person the athlete called after shooting Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year.

The South African Olympic sprinter denies intentionally killing her.

He says he shot through a toilet door while in a state of panic, fearing there was an intruder in his house.

The trial was adjourned on 17 April for an Easter break after Mr Pistorius and two expert witnesses had given evidence for the defence.
