Oscar Pistorius has resumed testifying at his murder trial. But the Olympic sprinter has faced tough questions, with the prosecution disputing the athlete’s account that he mistakenly killed his girlfriend in his home last year.

Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel cross-examined Pistorius, one day after a graphic photo of Reeva Steenkamp’s head wounds from a gunshot was shown in court. In Wednesday’s court session, Nel asked the double-amputee runner to look at the photo and take responsibility for what he did, but Pistorius refused to look at the image, saying he didn’t need to because he had been at the scene.

The prosecution also focused on the couple’s text message exchanges, noting that they never wrote "I love you" to each other. The prosecution is arguing that Pistorius intentionally killed Steenkamp after a dispute. But Pistorius says he shot her by accident, mistaking her for an intruder.
