Pretoria: The defence in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial has opened it's case, calling a pathologist as its first witness. (Pistorius to take stand)
Professor Jan Botha was testifying on Monday following four weeks of prosecution-led testimony and a week's adjournment after one of the judge's aides fell ill.
Botha was allowed to testify first and ahead of Pistorius in an agreement with prosecutors because of a family illness. Defendants who choose to testify normally go first in South Africa. (Prosecution wraps case)
