Oscar Pistorius bail hearing

See all the latest pictures from Oscar Pistorius' bail hearing at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court.

Pretoria - Paralympian Oscar Pistorius put on his prosthetic legs, walked to his bathroom and fired four shots, three of which hit his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, State prosecutor Gerrie Nel said in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

"He prepared. He armed himself. The motive was, he wanted to kill," Nel alleged in Pistorius's bail application.

Nel said Pistorius, a double amputee who became an Olympic athlete, walked seven metres to the small bathroom.

He fired four shots. Three hit Steenkamp. "It is those cold facts that makes this a pre-meditated murder," alleged Nel.

He said the bathroom door was broken down and, according to blood spatter analysis, Pistorius picked up Steenkamp and carried her downstairs.

Pistorius kept looking at his feet, his jaw clenched, as submissions on Steenkamp's final moments were made to magistrate Desmond Nair, who has to decide whether to grant him bail.
