Pistorius denies the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, claiming he thought she was an intruder when he shot her at his Pretoria home

The trial of Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius enters its second day today, with the athlete set to continue denying the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The six-time sprint champion will face a judge - and the world's media - once again in Pretoria, South Africa, for shooting dead the 29-year-old model on Valentine's Day last year.

Double amputee Pistorius admits shooting Ms Steenkamp dead at his home, but claims he thought she was an intruder.

Yesterday, the first day of the trial was dominated by the evidence of a prosecution witness who told the court how she heard “bloodcurdling” screams , then a “bang, bang, bang, bang” on the night his girlfriend was shot dead.

Pistorius, 27, sat in the dock taking notes as he watched the state’s first witness give evidence against him.

Much of the trial will be broadcast live, and the case has already attracted global attention, with TV channels offering wall-to-wall coverage, including one 24-hour channel set up in South Africa exclusively for the trial.
