Oscar Pistorius has resumed testifying at his murder trial under questioning from the chief prosecutor, who has accused the athlete of lying about how he fatally shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius' return to the witness box Friday followed a week of testimony in which the double-amputee runner said he killed Steenkamp by accident after mistaking her for an intruder in his home last year. The prosecution says Pistorius killed the 29-year-old model after an argument on Feb. 14, 2013.

Pistorius, 27, faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder. His trial began March 3.
