South African paralympian Oscar Pistorius has finished testifying at his murder trial. The athlete was again made to re-live the night when he shot his girlfriend.

Pistorius read the note at his murder trial after he was savaged on the stand by a prosecutor who painted him as a short-fused liar who deliberately gunned down his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day 2013. Pistorius claims he mistook Reeva Steenkamp for an intruder. And on Tuesday he declined to say he was responsible for the shooting. CCTV’s Guy Henderson has the story.
