These shocking new pictures reveal the bloodied scene which greeted police as they arrived to find Oscar Pistorius had shot his girlfriend.
The runner denies murdering Reeva Steenkamp when he shot her through the bathroom door of his luxury Pretoria home on Valentine's Day last year.
He says it was a tragic accident when he mistook her for an intruder.
Prosecutors argue the double amputee Olympian - known as the Blade Runner - is lying and he killed Reeva intentionally following a blazing argument.
These police photos show how officers arrived in the early hours of the morning to a gruesome scene.
Blood is spattered all over the toilet and bathroom floor as Pistorius' gun lies on towel.
The cricket bat he used to bash down the locked bathroom door also lies on the floor, covered in blood.
Police marked where bullets went through the bathroom door with arrows.
At the bottom of the stairs, other markers indicate where a distraught Pistorius was found cradling Reeva's body.
The athlete's trial has been adjourned after one of the judge's legal assessors fell ill but is due to resume next week.
Pistorius' legal team will begin his defence case and the 27-year-old is expected to take to the stand and give evidence himself.
