Oscar Pistorius Trial Day 21: 6th Day Of Cross

((HT: SABC Digital News))

Oscar Pistorius endured his sixth day of cross examination by Gerrie Nel and the state Monday...

Nel accused Pistorius of tailoring his testimony to fit the evidence at the scene and went through all the alleged inconsistencies the sprinter detailed during his defense testimony.

Pistorius twice broke down under cross- once when he was asked to repeat the how he told the alleged intruder to leave the bathroom before he fired four times through the bathroom door. The other was when Nel declared that Pistorius knew he was firing at girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp Valentine's Day 2013.

Here's session one of testimony

Pistorius' crying caused another call of a break by judge Thokozile Masipa. Remember, that since there is no jury system in South African courts, the judge is the sole renderer of a verdict. Pistorius faces 25 years in prison on the premeditated murder (first-degree) charge.
