Reeva Steenkamp’s mother, June, seemed overwhelmed and slightly frazzled when she arrived at court ahead of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial.

She was accompanied by family members and possibly a lawyer when she arrived at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria shortly before 9am today.

She had previously told Independent Newspapers she would select her seat so that Pistorius would have to look her in the eyes.

This morning, June Steenkamp did not want to grant media interviews.

She looked as if she had been crying.

As she entered court, the crowd made way for her to enter.

A clean-shaven Pistorius arrived at court shortly before 10am, dressed in a dark suit.
