Nel: High Court made an error in Oscar Pistorius trial

The state wants the court to convict the athlete of murder based on evidence presented during the 2014 trial.

BLOEMFONTEIN - The state has argued that the High Court in Pretoria made an error in Oscar Pistorius' trial and ignored certain circumstantial evidence.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel wants the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) to convict the athlete of murder, based on the evidence during the 2014 trial.

Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide after killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, he has since been released from prison after serving less than a year.

WATCH: Cousin: Reeva's death ended my world.

He is currently under house arrest at his uncle's Waterkloof mansion.

Nel says there is no indication in Judge Thokozile Masipa's judgment that the circumstantial evidence was either accepted or rejected.

Nel has argued the court ignored the most important evidence that would make Pistorius' version of events improbable.

WATCH: Pistorius family spokesperson Anneliese Burgess made a short statement outside the home of Oscar Pistorius's uncle, where the Paralympian is currently under correctional supervision.

This includes the screams that were heard in the early hours of the morning when Steenkamp was shot and gastric content which showed she may have eaten at that time and was therefore awake.

Judge Steven Majiedt says it's troubling how Masipa dealt with expert witness Chris Mangena's evidence.

He says the court found Mangena was a good witness, yet accepted part of Pistorius' version which was contradictory.

Nel also argued there are several errors of law and the court allowed Pistorius to have several defences, and then picked one for him.
