PRETORIA, South Africa — Prosecutors in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial on Thursday displayed a sequence of photos showing the blood stains found on the floors, walls, stairs and chairs in the athlete's house after he fatally shot his girlfriend.

In one photograph displayed on TV monitors at Pistorius' murder trial, spots of blood are seen right next to some of the double-amputee Olympian and multiple Paralympic champion's golden trophies.

The TV screen next to Pistorius was switched off during the display.

The images were described by a former policeman who was one of the two officers first on the scene after Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year. Former police colonel Schoombie van Rensburg described the "the trail of blood" he found when he arrived at Pistorius' home.
