Prosecutor to Pistorius: Reeva's Head “Exploded”

There were gasps in the courtroom at Oscar Pistorius' murder trial Wednesday as prosecutors demanded the Olympian look at a picture of the injuries his bullets left in Reeva Steenkamp’s head. State lawyer Gerrie Nel showed the court a video of the double-amputee athlete shooting at a watermelon at a gun range to the sound of laughter. Pistorius admitted that he could be heard in the video describing his shot and its effect on the fruit, saying: "It’s a lot softer than brain but **** it's a zombie stopper." Later Nel told Pistorius: “You know that the same thing happened to Reeva’s head. It exploded. It had the exact same effect. It’s time that you looked at it. Take responsibility.”
