Oscar Pistorius 'very much in love', says defence team

Help

Oscar Pistoprius had no intention of killing his girlfriend, and the couple were very much in love, his defence team has told a court in Pretoria.

During the two-day bail hearing, the court will hear from both the defence and the prosecution, who claim the shooting dead of Reeva Steenkamp was premeditated.

Reporting from outside the court, Andrew Harding said the court had heard how Mr Pistorius had been "terrified, convinced that he was being burgled."
