Oscar Pistorius himself took the stand during his trial on Monday and apologized to the family of his slain girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
"I'd like to apologize and say there hasn't been a moment since this tragedy happened that I haven't thought about your family," a visibly emotional Pistorius said in court. "I wake up every morning and you're the first people I think of, the first people I pray for. I can't imagine the pain I've caused you and your family."
Pistorius has always maintained that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he fatally shot her through a bathroom door at his home on Valentine's Day 2013.
