Oscar Pistorius Vomits in Court; Reeva Steenkamp Injury Description Makes Killer Sick

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Oscar Pistorius threw up in court Monday, often, as a pathologist detailed the injuries Reeva Steenkamp sustained when Oscar shot her through a locked door.

The Olympic track star, currently on trial for murder, was given a bucket to vomit into during testimony in South Africa, and he used it quite frequently.

When he wasn't booting, Oscar Pistorius was seen rocking back and forth in his seat, crying and covering his ears with his hands throughout the testimony.

The graphic testimony was pretty gruesome stuff by any measure.

Professor Gert Saayman detailed the bullet wounds he found on Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius' girlfriend who he killed on Valentine's Day 2013, following her death.

The prosecution witness testified in detail about how the 29-year-old model was shot on the top of the head, in the right elbow, in the right hip and left hand.

The judge asked Pistorius' lawyer if he was going to be able to compose himself and stay in court. Oscar said he wanted to continue ... and was allowed to stay.

Saayman said the head wound incapacitated Steenkamp immediately, which isn't surprising, given the hardcore ammo used by the man who gunned her down.

He also said the bullets used by Pistorius, who claims he mistook her for an intruder, were Black Talons, the kind that "expand and mushroom" on impact.

The 27-year-old Olympian faces life in prison if convicted.
