JOHANNESBURG - The legal team for murder accused Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius will continue calling witnesses in his defence when his trial resumes in Pretoria on Monday after a two-week adjournment.

The matter was postponed to allow the legal teams involved, including state prosecutor Gerrie Nel and defence attorney Barry Roux , time to deal with other cases, which had been put on hold as a result of this one.

The 'Blade Runner' is accused of murdering his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, at his home on Valentine's Day last year.

Questions remain over who Pistorius's defence team will call to the witness box next; his neighbour Johan Stander or forensic expert Wollie Wolmarans.

Stander was the first person Pistorius phoned after shooting Steenkamp.

He will be able to tell the court what was said during that call and describe Pistorius's emotional state at the crime scene.

Wolmarans may follow on the testimony of previous expert witness Roger Dixon, who made wide and varying findings which appeared to come undone during cross examination by Nel.

Wolmarans and Dixon conducted several tests together, including sound tests to establish whether a cricket bat striking a door is as loud as a gunshot.
