Two bottles, said to be of testosterone, and needles were found in Oscar Pistorius's home following the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The investigating officer in the Oscar Pistorius murder case has revealed that two bottles of testosterone were found in the Paralymic champion's home, a court has heard.

Detective Hilton Botha, who has been giving evidence on the second day of the double amputee's bail hearing at Pretoria Magistrates' Court, has revealed that a substance that he believed to be testosterone and needles were found on the premises following the death of Pistorius's girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot dead through a bathroom door.

The defence, however, claiming that the bottles found were not testosterone, but a herbal remedy.

The 26-year-old athlete has been charged with the premeditated murder of the 29-year-old model, who was cremated in a private ceremony yesterday.

The prosecution told the court today that they had a witness statement claiming "non-stop fighting" could be heard from Pistorius's home for an hour on the morning of Steenkamp's death.

The court has ruled the charge as a schedule six offence, which damages the South African native's chances of achieving bail.

Pistorius has denied murder and revealed in his affidavit yesterday that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder.
