Oscar Pistorius was "probably not wearing his prosthetic legs" when he fatally shot his girlfriend through a toilet door, a forensic analyst has told his murder trial.
The matter of whether Pistorius was on his stumps is critical to the case as it tests his assertions about exactly what happened on the night he killed Reeva Steenkamp in his bathroom on February 14, 2013.
The athlete has said he fearfully approached the bathroom on his stumps and shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder.
According to his account, he then put on his prostheses and tried to kick down the locked toilet door, and battered it with a cricket bat to get to his girlfriend after realising what he had done.
JG Vermeulen, a forensic analyst, said he believed Pistoriuswas on his stumps when he fired through the toilet door, based on the angle of the bullet marks in the door, which was on display in the courtroom.
However, Mr Vermeulen said the bat was used to hit the door from a low position, and he knelt and swungPistorius's cricket bat at the door to demonstrate his point.

Prime Minister David Cameron reiterated his support for a two state solution for Israel and Palestine during a two-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Russian MPs who have been calling for Crimea to be transferred to the Russian Federation should be included in any sanctions imposed by the EU, David Cameron has said.
But the Prime Minister declined to name individuals or put a figure on the number of MPs he wants to target.
EU foreign ministers, including William Hague, will meet in Brussels next Monday to discuss further sanctions, which could be in place within two or three days.
Malaysia's military chief has told reporters a radar detection in the Malacca Strait - off the west coast of Malaysia - could be that of the missing aircraft.
Rodzali Daud said the reading, which he explained needed to be corroborated, happened 45 minutes after the plane disappeared.
Police witness Lt Col Vermeulen, who has been demonstrating how the toilet door through which Reeva Steenkamp was shot was potentially hit by a cricket bat, says he believes the door was hit after the shots took place.

Vermeulen believes the door was hit after the shots. Important piece of testimony
Malaysia's military radar detected what could have been the missing Malaysian Airlines plane in an area in the northern Malacca Strait - hundreds of miles from the spot where the plane disappeared, the air force chief has said.
Rodzali Daud told a news conference that the tracking was at 2.15am local time on Saturday, about 45 minutes after the plane with 239 people on board, disappeared.
He said the radar tracking was at a point 200 miles north-west of Penang island on Malaysia's west coast but stressed the information needed to be corroborated.
Pistorius' defence lawyer Barry Roux has claimed the toilet door being presented in court has changed since it was removed from the Pistorius estate.
A potentially important point from Roux. He says there are additional marks on the door which weren't there on photos taken after the crime.
And pieces of the door are missing too. Defence appears to be painting a picture of a flawed investigation
The toilet door through which Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend was set up in court today, and a police witness demonstrated various ways in which the door could have been struck by a cricket bat.
The witness said the marks on the door are consistent with Pistorius being on stump, and demonstrated this by crouching down to the height Pistorius would be without his prosthetics
Defence lawyer Roux said the state case against Pistorius - that he intentionally killed his girlfriend - is that he was on his prosthetic legs. The prosecution disagreed with this.
