Yes, indeed, the defence called Oscar Pistorius on to the witness stand in his murder trial and he was tearfully saying it was all a mistake and that he was trying to protect Reeva.
Whether you want to believe that explanation is entirely up to you. Anyway, the trial broke for the day early; testimony resumes Tuesday.
Update — I notice there was a good live blog of the testimony and the day’s proceedings at Eyewitness News.
Also, for those of you wondering if I am jealous about not being able to be there covering the Pistorius trial, don’t worry. We have people in our own community who apparently like to shoot off weapons, too, so I am in court this week covering that alleged incident. Never a dull moment in the news business.
