Lawyers for Oscar Pistorius began their defence case on Monday, which should see the star athlete take the stand, and opened with the testimony of a forensic pathologist.
Barry Roux called former state pathologist Jan Botha, who has carried out about 25,000 autopsies, to testify. Pistorius is expected to follow.
Roux said he will call 14 to 17 witnesses in his case to testify on ballistics, urine emptying, damage to the toilet door, sound, and "disability and vulnerability."
