Parts of Pistorius trial to be broadcast live

JOHANNESBURG (AP) - A South Africa judge has ruled that television stations can broadcast parts of Oscar Pistorius' murder trial live, but with restrictions on witness testimonies.

Gauteng High Court Judge Dunstan Mlambo ruled Tuesday that South African media houses will be allowed to install three remote controlled cameras in court for the Olympic athlete's trial starting next week to capture images that likely will be seen by millions around the world.

Pistorius' defense lawyers had opposed any of the trial being broadcast saying it would harm his chances of a fair trial.

Mlambo said some witnesses could object to their specific testimony being shown on TV. There will also be restrictions on broadcasting confidential discussions between Pistorius and his lawyers.

The judge will allow two mounted cameras to take photographs inside court.

I don't know the laws in South Africa.... but I wonder if they did a toxicology test on Oscar within 24 hours of him shooting Reeva? Only defense would be drugged up mind.

Lets toss out all his background sob story. Just a guy with a girlfriend. Sharing a bed. He knew she was not in the bed. She had to be somewhere. There was probably a light under the bathroom door.

Why grab a gun? Murder.

He denied mistaken her for an intruder, then why did he kill her?
