The judge is now getting involved to help clarify things. Burger addresses the judge in English. Roux isn't waiting for the translator to translate Burger's statement before asking another question.
You can hear the frustration in Michell Burger's voice. Roux is questioning every word she says, making her go back and clarify over and over again.
Roux says Burger has changed her version of events because she says she heard 4 shots but says her husband says he heard 4, 5 or 6 shots.
Roux is pushing Burger to answer if shots could have been fired before she woke up. Roux says: Maybe you must listen. Roux is trying to say that the sounds Burger heard could have been a cricket bat being used to break down the door.
Roux is questioning the order in which events happened. Burger says she heard the screams of a woman, followed by the gun shots.
Court is back in session.
Court will resume shortly. We'll hear if state advocate Gerrie Nel has additional questions for witness Michelle Burger. If not, cross examination will begin.
Court will be back in session in an hour.
Nel is asking that the court take an early lunch. The judge is granting his request. The court is adjourned for lunch.
Burger: We are not really media people. It's difficult for us to be here. I contacted an attorney and an advocate to get advice about giving a statement. We wanted to give the statement privately to avoid the media attention.
Burger's husband called her and told her that Oscar Pistorius was on the news.
Michelle Burger says she went to work the next morning, and called a friend on her way. She asked her friend to find out what happened since the friend's child goes to the Silver Woods nursery school.
The witness is being shown aerial photos and is pointing out where her house is in relation to Oscar Pistorius' house.
Gerrie Nel, the state's advocate, is now showing the witness a piece of evidence.
Burger: It was a confusing evening.
Burger says she sitting in bed when all of this was going on.
Burger heard four gun shots. The time between the 1st and 4th shots was much longer than between the 2nd and 3rd ones, she says. She describes the pacing of the shots using "bang."
While they were trying to call the correct security people, Michelle Burger says she heard "more intense" screams. "Something terrible was happening at that house," she says.
Burger: I called security. I gave the phone to my husband who told the security people that there were people next door being attacked.
Burger: I also heard a man screaming for help. Three times he yelled for help.
Michelle Burger has never met Oscar Pistorius. She knew he lived in Silver Lakes Estates, but didn't know where.
Michelle Burger's face won't be shown. We can hear her but can't see her. She's testifying in Afrikaans.
First witness Michelle Burger, one of Pistorius' neighbors, is being called to the stand.
There will now be an opening address by Pistorius' lawyer, followed by the first witness.
