Oscar Pistorius' Marathon Trial Marked by Screams, Tears, Vomit, Anger
Pistorius' murder trial lasted for five months.
PRETORIA, South Africa — -- Oscar Pistorius' murder trial has spanned five months, prolonged by several interruptions including a month long break so the paralympian sprinter could be examined by a team of mental health experts.
And Judge Thokozile Masipa has spent the last five weeks determining and writing her verdict, which will be revealed later this week.
Pistorius, once the poster boy of the London 2012 Olympics after becoming the first disabled athlete to compete against able bodied competitors, is now known for shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp early in the morning on Valentine's Day last year.
The trial, which started on March 3, has been emotional, dramatic and at times graphic, and Pistorius' reactions have ranged from crying and vomiting in the courtroom to fingering rosary beads and reading religious tracts during testimony.
The trial ended Friday and Judge Thokozile Masipa, along with two assistants, will determine whether Pistorius is guilty or innocent. If found guilty of the most serious charge, he could be sentenced to at least 25 years in prison.
