Pistorius trial continues

Posted: Updated:
PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - Oscar Pistorius' defense lawyer has called an anesthetist to testify at the runner's murder trial.
    
Prof. Aina Lundgren was being questioned Thursday on her expertise regarding how long it takes a person to digest food after eating.
    
The testimony relates to an autopsy report on Reeva Steenkamp's body that said she still had food in her stomach after she was killed by Pistorius, leading prosecutors to challenge his story that the couple ate around eight hours before he shot her through a toilet door.
    
Experts testifying for the prosecution say a person's stomach is normally empty of food six hours after eating, arguing Steenkamp ate later on the night of the killing and not in line with Pistorius' story.
