The first witness in South African star athlete Oscar Pistorius's murder trial testified Monday that she heard terrible screams coming from his home on the night of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp's death.

At around 3 am (0100 GMT) on Valentine's Day last year Michelle Burger told the court in Pretoria she awoke to hear a woman's voice. "She screamed terribly and she yelled for help."
