“It was a terrible, serious, devastating head wound,” Barry Roux, for Pistorius, told the seventh State witness, radiologist Johan Stipp.
He was making the point that Stipp could not have heard a woman screaming in the early hours of February 14 last year.
“A person with that injury would not have been able to scream,” said Roux.
Stipp’s home, in the Silver Woods Country Estate, Pretoria, is near Pistorius’s. He testified that he woke up around 3am to what sounded like gunshots, then heard a woman screaming and then three more “bangs”.
Prosecutor Gerrie Nel rose and objected to Roux’s phrasing.
He said it could not be stated as a fact that the first shot killed Steenkamp, thus making it impossible for her to scream.
Stipp was the first doctor to see Steenkamp’s body lying in Pistorius’s home.
Pistorius is accused of the murder of Steenkamp. He is also charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and two counts of discharging a firearm in public.
He allegedly fired a shot from a Glock pistol under a table at a Johannesburg restaurant in January 2013.
In September 2010 he allegedly shot through the open sunroof of a car with his 9mm pistol while driving with friends in Modderfontein.
