A doctor who arrived at Oscar Pistorius' home after he shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp testified Thursday that the Olympian pleaded that "she must not die."

The double-amputee sprinter is charged with murder with premeditation after shooting the 29-year-old model through a toilet door. Pistorius says he believed Steenkamp was an intruder.

Johan Stipp, a doctor who lives near the athlete, recounted the events of early Valentine's Day last year.
