Pistorius 'In Love' With Reeva: Exclusive

New video - exclusively shown on Sky News - has emerged of paralympian Oscar Pistorius and his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp which shows the couple kissing and cuddling 10 days before the Valentines Day shooting.

The couple's relationship is likely to be minutely examined during the trial after claims from witnesses that the pair were heard rowing in the hours leading up to the shooting.

In the CCTV footage the two are seen browsing in a grocery store while laughing and joking together.

It is late at night and the couple seem to be in good spirits.

They were remembered by the staff at the store because Pistorius left a hefty R100 tip (8).

Pistorius will appear in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Monday accused of the murder of his model girlfriend on February 14 last year.

The couple had been in a relationship for a few months.

Pistorius says the pair were deeply in love and he mistakenly shot his girlfriend through a locked toilet cubicle believing she was an intruder.

The prosecution contends he deliberately killed her after an argument.

:: Sky News will have live coverage of the trial from Monday, with a special highlights programme at 9.30pm.

:: Watch Sky News live on television, on Sky channel 501, Virgin Media channel 602, Freeview channel 82 and Freesat channel 202.
