One of Oscar Pistorius' ex-girlfriends returned to court on Monday -- but there appeared to be no love lost between them.

Samantha Taylor told the sprinter's murder trial last week how they had started dating when she was aged 17 after he contacted her via Facebook. On Monday, she reurned to the High Court in Pretoria to listen to evidence.

Taylor, now 20, testified that Pistorius kept a gun with him "all the time" and recounted how he once fired a shot out of a car's sunroof. She also accused the Olympian of cheating on her with Reeva Steenkamp, who was later fatally shot. That claim triggered a "murmur" in the courtroom.

The double-amputee is accused of premeditated murder over the Valentine's Day 2013 killing of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old law graduate and model. Pistorius insists he killed Steenkamp accidentally after mistaking her for an intruder.

The trial continues.
