Pistorius testifies about relationship with Reeva Steenkamp

PRETORIA - Star Paralympian Oscar Pistorius returned to the witness box to testify in his murder trial Tuesday, after an emotional first day that saw him issue a tearful apology to the victim's family.

Pistorius sat before a packed courtroom wearing a dark grey suit as he described how his relationship with Reeva Steenkamp developed, and with faltering voice, how the couple began to think of the future.

The athlete described how he met the model at a track day car event. "The first six days we knew each other we called each other everyday," he said.

"We both had things that kept us back. We both came out of difficult relationships before," he said.

"I was very keen on Reeva."

"I think if anything I was more into her, than she was at times with me."
