Oscar Pistorius Trial Week 7: More Defense From The Defense

((HT: SABC Digital News))

It was more opportunities for the defense in the Oscar Pistorius trial to continue to reinforce the idea that the sprinter shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, by accident on Valentine's Day 2013.

The prosecutor, Gerrie Nel, hammered away at the defendant and went after inconsistencies in his time line and testimony. But the defense interviewed someone who lived in the gated community who received a phone call from Pistorius immediately after the shooting who seconded his state of mind at the time of the shooting.

Johan Stander was on the stand this morning...

Monday's proceedings ended early because lead defense attorney Barry Roux said he had expected Stander and his daughter to take up the full day. They didn't and no other defense witnesses were at the courthouse to go under examination.
