Oscar Pistorius took the stand today in a South African court for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius, visibly shaken, could barely be heard as he apologized to the family of Reeva.“I’d like to apologize and there hasn’t been a moment since this tragedy happened that I haven’t thought about your family. I wake up every morning, you’re the first people I think of, the first people I pray for. I can’t mention the pain and the sorrow and the emptiness that I caused you and your family, and I was simply trying to protect Reeva.”

Pistorius claims that he believed there was an intruder in his home and had no idea it was his girlfriend he was shooting through the bathroom door on Valentine’s Day 2013. Prosecutors believe the killing was premeditated after neighbors say they heard arguing from Pistorius’ home the night of the shooting!
