PRETORIA, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Paralympic track star Oscar Pistorius put on his prosthetic legs, walked seven metres to a bathroom in his luxury Pretoria home and then opened fire on his girlfriend, who was behind a bathroom door, a prosecutor told a Pretoria court on Tuesday.

Pistorius early broke down in tears at the bail hearing where he is facing a murder charge.
