The mother of slain model Reeva Steenkamp left Oscar Pistorius' murder trial on Monday to avoid seeing crime scene photos.
The Olympian is accused of premeditated murder after shooting his girlfriend Steenkamp through a bathroom door on Feb. 14, 2013. Pistorius insists he mistook her for an intruder. He has pleaded not guilty to the law graduate's death as well as firearms charges.
Appearing on TODAY earlier this month, June Steenkamp said she "can forgive" Pistorius for killing her daughter.
"It's actually important to forgive him, for me, because I don’t want to live with bitterness in my life," she told Savannah Guthrie.
The trial continues.
