    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Saayman says in the immediate seconds after being shot - mental incapacitation would be minimal - that comes later.

    Saayman: The shot to the brain however would cause immediate incapicitation

    Saayman: Urine was murky - a result of cells becoming loose from the bladder

    Roux says urine in bladder was minimal - one would expect more at that time in the morning

    Saayman: depends on premise you working on - if you are already dehydrated - you would produce less urine - many factors impact

    @RAGreeneCNN
    #OscarTrial prosecution establishes pathologist credentials: Saayman estimates he's done or supervised 10-15,000 (!!!) autopsies.

    Oscar Pistorius appears more composed today as Roux cross-examines Gert Saayman

    Discussing how food is processed - key to fact Reeva ate a small meal after 12 contrary to OP saying they went to bed at 10pm

    Roux asking what journals he referred to - to make his conclusions. Roux wants an adjournment to look at journal articles

    Roux asks the judge for an adjournment to read the articles Saayman refers to

    Saayman says he is not relying on any one article but combines it with his years of experience

    https://twitter.com/Debora_Patta

    Court adjourned for a half hour so Roux can read journal articles.

    Nel asking Saayman how many autopsies he has conducted, he answers 10,000 -15,000.
    end of Nel's questioning.

    Roux up now...

    'Roux asks Saayman if devastation of Reeva wounds would have been more intense if shots fired in quick succession' @eNCAnews #OscarTrial

    and Roux also asking Saayman about Reeva's bladder contents -

    Roux setting up for defense argument that Oscar shot Reeva in quick succession rendering her unable to scream out before head shot left her incapacited and that Reeva's near empty bladder adds weight to 'her having just gone to the bathroom and being mistaken for an intruder' theory.

    I'm strongly displeased with this tactic by Roux to rattle the witness. Surely he could have asked for the journal articles before today.


    @Debora_Patta
    Defence reading articles Saayman refers to - Saayman insists articles must be seen in conjunction with his years of experience.
