Pistorius urged to look at photo of dead lover

Related Story

PRETORIA, South Africa - The chief prosecutor in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial has urged the athlete to "take responsibility" for fatally shooting his girlfriend, pushing him to look at a police photograph of Reeva Steenkamp's bloodied head that was displayed in court.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said Wednesday that Steenkamp's head "exploded" when it was struck by one of four bullets that Pistorius fired through a closed toilet door in his home last year.

The photograph showed a sideview of Steenkamp's head, with a mass of blood and human tissue on the back and upper parts. Her eyes were closed. Nel said: "It's time that you look at it."

Pistorius appeared distraught, saying he didn't have to look because he was at the scene when Steenkamp died.
