The hearing will continue tomorrow when Oscar Pistorius is likely to find out whether or not he is guilty of culpable homicide.
But earlier he broke down, he sobbed, he was comforted by his siblings, as he heard that the most serious charges of murder and pre-meditated murder had been eliminated. He did not intend to kill his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, the judge decided.
This has taken four hours of judgement today.
Judge Thokozile Masipa has said that Oscar Pistorius was "negligent" when he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year.

She has adjourned court until Friday morning.
