Police oppose bail for Oscar Pistorius

PRETORIA, South Africa — A police detective, testifying at Oscar Pistorius’ bail hearing Wednesday, said that police have not found anything inconsistent with how the star athlete described his shooting of his girlfriend — a killing that Pistorius says was accidental but which prosecutors call murder.

The second day of the bail hearing in a case that has riveted South Africa and much of the world appeared at first to go against the double amputee, with prosecutor Gerrie Nel saying a witness can testify to hearing ‘‘non-stop talking, like shouting’’ between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. before the predawn shooting on Valentine’s Day.
