Court will be back tomorrow at 9:30 a.m local time.
Gerrie Nel requests that the court adjourn for the day. Judge Masipa grants his request. Day two is done.
When he learned that his version of events differed from what the investigation had already yielded, Charl Johnson decided he was "morally obligated" to get involved.
Johnson says that initially he didn't want to get involved with the investigation. He thought there would've been other people that were closer to Pistorius' house who could give their version of events. As it got closer to the bail hearing, he realized that no other witnesses had come forward.
Johnson called a developer he knew who was building a house in the Silver Woods neighborhood to see if he knew what had happened the night before. The developer told Mr. Johnson that he'd heard that Oscar Pistorius had shot his girlfriend.
Johnson says after they heard the shots, he and his wife tried to go back to sleep but was concerned for their own safety. He lay in bed trying to think of ways to add security to their house.
Johnson's testimony is very similar to Michelle Burger's testimony. He says he heard an increase in fear and anxiety in the woman's voice and that he heard screams during the gun shots. The screams stopped after the last gun shot. Johnson doesn't know how many shots he heard, he initially thought he heard 5 or 6.
In South Africa, most neighborhoods have private security companies that patrol the area.
Johnson says his wife handed him a phone that had already been dialed to call security. He didn't realize that he'd called the wrong security company. They accidentally called their previous security company from an old address but hadn't changed the number in her cell phone.
Johnson says he heard both a man and a woman yelling "help"
Johnson is now pointing out their house on an aerial map.
Johnson is very soft spoken, the judge has asked him to speak louder.
Johnson said that a woman's scream woke him up during the early hours of February 14. After the first screams he lifted his head from his pillow to make sure he heard correctly. When he heard the screams again, he ran to the balcony.
Johnson says February 13, 2013 was a normal evening for him and his wife. They went to bed between 9 and 10 p.m.
Now he's switching to English. The interpreter is available if he needs help.
Witness Charl Johnson is up next. He's sworn in. Mr. Johnson is Michelle Burger's husband. He's testifying in Afrikaans. There's a male interpreter for him.
Nel is done with re-examination. Mrs. van der Merwe is excused.
After van der Merwe heard that Oscar Pistorius had shot his girlfriend, she told her husband that she'd heard a woman's voice that night.
Nel asks van der Merwe about how she knew it was a woman's voice. Van der Merwe says: "A woman's voice is higher than a man's voice. A man's voice has more bass. When a woman gets worked up, her voice quivers."
Roux has no further questions for the witness. Gerrie Nel, however, does.
Roux asks what van der Merwe did after she heard the sounds, if she checked on her child or went outside. She says, "I got such a big fright I didn't know what to do."
She remembers getting a fright and sitting up straight in bed. She doesn't remember what happened after that.
Van der Merwe says she cannot remember 100% of everything that happened that night.
Van der Merwe says her husband has spoken to Oscar Pistorius before but she doesn't know what they talked about. Her husband had said he heard Oscar crying that night.
Roux says van der Merwe couldn't hear arguing, she says she could. Roux reminds her that van der Merwe said she couldn't make out words or language. She says, "I know a woman's voice" and what it sounds like when she's angry.
Roux is calling into question van der Merwe's memory about what she heard that night.
