Oscar Pistorius' girlfriend told the South African athlete she was sometimes afraid of him, complaining that he had a short temper and was jealous.

All this in the weeks before he killed her in February 2013, according to phone messages revealed at the Oscar Pistorius murder trial on Monday.

"I'm scared of u sometimes and how u snap at me and of how u will react to me," Reeva Steenkamp texted him, police Capt. Francois Moller said.

In another message Steenkamp wrote: "I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating u AND be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from."

Moller said that from Steenkamp's phone he obtained more than 1,000 exchanges with Pistorius on WhatsApp and other phone messaging applications.

Moller cited as evidence two BlackBerry phones, two iPhones, two iPads and a Mac from Pistorius' house the day after he killed Reeva Steenkamp.
