Oscar Pistorius' father, Henke, tried to comfort his son as he left the courtroom today.
He reached out and grabbed Oscar's arm as he was being led out of the courtroom and the pair held eye contact for a few seconds.
Pistorius will concentrate on defending himself against allegations that he murdered his model girlfriend on Valentine's morning.
The South African press say the weapon is a key piece of police evidence, but Pistorius' family said the death is a 'tragic accident.'
The family and management of Oscar Pistorius have released a statement disputing the murder charge against him 'in the strongest terms'.
