Oscar Pistorius Repeatedly Vomits as Gruesome Details about Late Girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp's Murder are Revealed

Oscar Pistorius, on trial in Pretoria, South Africa for the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, was today overcome during testimony about Steenkamp's autopsy that he uncontrollably vomited several times.

As the state threw up its latest witness — forensic pathologist Prof. Gert Saayman, to reveal details of the postmortem done on Reeva Steenkamp's body — and thereby the gruesome details of just how she died, Pistorius lurched and retched, forcing the court to stop.

Oscar went pale on hearing the precise details of what the bullets he fired did to his girlfriend on Valentine's
Day, causing the court to be stopped three times in the morning session to allow him to compose himself.
But it didn't help.

Eventually Pistorius' counsel Barry Roux told the court, "We must go on, it won't get better."

Armed with a blue bucket, Oscar sat crouched down, fingers clasped behind his head, spit dribbling downward as the rest of the packed courtroom listened to the gripping testimony unfold.Continue...
 Millions of viewers outside the courtroom were barred from hearing Saayman describe in detail the mortal wounds Steenkamp suffered, mainly as both the defense and prosecution agreed that it would impede the dignity of Steenkamp and her family as grim details were about her death were revealed.

Steenkamp was shot in the top right of her head, the right elbow, the right hip, and the webbing of her left hand.

One question still at issue is when the fatal bullet was fired. The prosecution is arguing that the fatal shot was the final one, and that Steenkamp screamed loud enough for witnesses to hear. The defense is expected to argue that the fatal shot was the first one.
