More than a year after he killed his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius is expected to finally answer questions about why he shot Reeva Steenkamp through a toilet door when his murder trial resumes this week and his defense lawyers begin presenting the evidence they hope will save the Olympic athlete from going to prison for 25 years to life.
A pathologist will likely testify first when Oscar Pistorius' defense team starts calling witnesses at his murder trial next week, the double-amputee athlete's lawyer said Tuesday.
The murder trial of Oscar Pistorius has been delayed until April 7 because one of the legal experts who will assist the judge in reaching a verdict is sick, abruptly ending expectations Friday that the double-amputee athlete was about to testify on his fatal shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The murder trial of former Olympian Oscar Pistorius was postponed on Friday, after the judge said her legal assistant had taken ill.
Before he killed his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius broke barriers and the world embraced him for it. The double-amputee runner challenged the athletic establishment and secured the right to race on his carbon fiber blades in the 2012 Olympics.
The defense in Oscar Pistorius' trial will open its case Friday and may first put the double-amputee Olympian accused of murder on the witness stand.
Oscar Pistorius will probably testify at his trial later this week, a defense attorney said Tuesday after prosecutors rested their case against the double-amputee runner who is accused of murder in his girlfriend's death.
