There was no love in the relationship between Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp, Reeva's cousin Kim Martin told a court in Oscar Pistorius' sentencing trial.

Kim Martin, who was Reeva's best friend, said they were "like sisters" and that Reeva confided in her about everything.

She said that Reeva was fond of Oscar and that she liked him, but she did not love him.

Ms Martin is the last witness in the trial, and her testimony to the court was short but emotional.

She described her uncle Barry Steenkamp - Reeva's father - as a "broken man", saying that he feels guilt for not being able to protect his daughter.
