Oscar Pistorius in court

Pretoria - Paralympian Oscar Pistorius' application for bail was postponed until Wednesday after the Pretoria Magistrate's Court heard that he had not intended to kill his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

"You will remain in custody until the court reconvenes at 09:00 tomorrow," Magistrate Desmond Nair said on Tuesday afternoon.

The postponement was to give the legal teams time to respond to affidavits presented to the court, and to ask questions, Nair said.

Pistorius will spend another night in a police cell in Pretoria, following his emotional day in court.

The application for him to be detained in the Brooklyn police station's holdings cells, instead of in a prison, expires on Wednesday.

"We will extend the application if we don't finish," said his attorney Kenny Oldwage.

Steenkamp's funeral was held in Port Elizabeth, about 1 100km from Pretoria, on Tuesday morning.
