YouWager has learned that according to a police detective testifying at Oscar Pistorius’ bail hearing earlier this morning they have not found anything inconsistent with how the star athlete described his shooting of his girlfriend. Pistorius claims the shooting was accidental; however, prosecutors call the events murder.
Today marked the second day of the bail hearing which appeared to go against the 26 year-old, with prosecutor Gerrie Nel saying a witness can testify to hearing “non-stop talking, like shouting” between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. before the predawn shooting on February 14th.
According to Pistorius he and girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp had gone to bed and that when he awoke during the night he detected what he thought was an intruder in the bathroom.
The double amputee said he then grabbed his 9 mm pistol and fired into the bathroom door. He then claims that he later discovered that Steenkamp was there, mortally wounded.
Police Detective Warrant Officer Hilton Botha Under said under cross-examination that the witness who allegedly overheard the argument was more than 650 yards from where the shooting occurred at Pistorius’ house.
The prosecution tried to support their argument that the couple had a shouting match, that Steenkamp fled and locked herself into the toilet and that Pistorius fired four shots through the door, hitting her with three bullets.
However, the police have stated they haven’t found anything inconsistent with the version of events presented by Pistorius.
