Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius's murder trial in Pretoria is adjourned until Monday.

Oscar Pistorius's murder trial has been adjourned until Monday on day 13 at the High Court in Pretoria.

The Paralympic athlete has been accused of killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he shot dead through a bathroom door at his home on Valentine's Day last year.

The prosecution told the court that they are close to wrapping up their case, with just a few more witnesses left to call, prompting the judge to adjourn proceedings until next week.

The defence will then eventually bring any witnesses that they have to the stand, with Pistorius himself expected to be called up before the trial is concluded.

Pistorius denies murder by maintaining that he mistook the South African model for an intruder when he fired the gunshots.
