Pistorius Trial Focuses On Girlfriend's Last Meal

(Pretoria) -- A defense witness in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial is trying to let the air out of a prosecution claim about the last meal eaten by the South African track star's girlfriend. In court today, anesthetist Christina Lundgren labeled as "pure speculation" prosecutors' argument that Reeva Steenkamp's stomach would have been empty if the couple had eaten when Pistorius testified they had. Prosecutors tried to persuade the judge that the Olympic and Paralympic sprinter lied about the timing of the couple's dinner and other details surrounding the shooting death of Steenkamp.
Pistorius insists he shot the 29-year-old model and law school graduate through a closed door because he believed he was shooting at an intruder in his home near Pretoria. Prosecutors say he shot Steenkamp after the couple argued.
