Police: Testosterone found at Pistorius
SOUTH AFRICA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Paralympic runner Oscar Pistorius is back in a South African court room Wednesday for the second day of his bail hearing.

In testimony Wednesday morning police say they found two boxes of testosterone and needles in Pistorius' bedroom.

His defense lawyer says it was an "herbal remedy" and not a banned substance.

The defense insist the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, was a tragic accident. They say Pistouris believed there was a burglar in his bathroom and he fired four shots through the door before realizing Steenkamp was not in bed.

The judge says Pistorius' lawyer will have to prove exceptional circumstances that would justify granting bail.

Prosecutors say he is a cold-blooded killer who shot Steenkamp after a shouting match.

Pistorius told police he had received death threats, so he always slept with his pistol beneath his bed.
