The Olympic and Paralympic athlete's defence team wrapped up its case today.
Video footage of paralympian Oscar Pistorius re-enacting the night he shot dead Reeva Steenkamp will be broadcast on Australian television.
The video, which is already online, shows the athlete walking, without his prosthetic legs, across his apartment, as if holding a gun, watched by various men in suits.
His defence team say the footage was part of a number of exercises that made up part of their forensics analysis of the night, and were obtained illegally.
Oscar Pistorius is severely traumatised after killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp and will become an increasing suicide risk unless he continues to receive mental health care, a court heard today.
Defence lawyer Barry Roux read excerpts from a psychologist's report at Pistorius' murder trial that said the athlete has depression and post-traumatic stress disorder
"His condition is likely to worsen" if professional treatment for those conditions is halted, he told the Pretoria court.
Pistorius denies murdering Steenkamp on Valentine's Day year, claiming he opened fire after mistakenly thinking there was an intruder in the bathroom.
Oscar Pistorius did not have a mental health problem when he killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year, his murder trial has heard.
Pistorius' trial resumed today after the Olympic and Paralympic athlete underwent a 30-day psychiatric evaluation, during which a panel of experts assessed his mental state at the time of the shooting and whether Pistorius was capable of understanding the wrongfulness of the act.
The evaluation came after a psychiatrist, Dr Merryll Vorster, testified for the defence that Pistorius had an anxiety disorder that could have contributed to the killing.
Pistorius denies murder and told the Pretoria court that he opened fire after mistakenly thinking there was an intruder in the bathroom.
