South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius, accused of murdering his girlfriend, sits with his head in his hand after arriving at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, South Africa, for the second day of his trial on March 4, 2014. Lawyers for Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will on March 4 resume a searing cross-examination of a key witness at his murder trial who claims to have heard screams, then shots, as his girlfriend was killed. The second day of Pistorius's trial for the Valentine's Day killing of Reeva Steenkamp will begin with lawyer Barry Roux redoubling efforts to pick apart the prosecution's premier witness.
