PRETORIA, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius said at cross examination that he made a “mistake” when he shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, local media reported.
Pistorius said Steenkamp had died in his arms. When the medics arrived, the athlete realized there was nothing they could do.
The Paralympic athlete has admitted to the killing of Reeva Steenkamp on February 14 last year, but insisted it was not intentional, as he mistook her for an intruder. The prosecution intends to prove it was murder. In the case the charge is proved beyond a reasonable doubt, Pistorius would face from 25 years to life imprisonment. The trial began on March 3 and will continue to mid-May.
