Pistorius Defense To File Closing Arguments Today

(Pretoria) — Attorneys for South African track star Oscar Pistorius will file their closing arguments today. The Paralympic and Olympic sprinter admits shooting girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a closed bathroom door at his Pretoria home. But the double-amputee athlete insists he believed he was shooting at an intruder who had broken into his condo early on Valentine’s Day last year. Prosecutors say Pistorius shot Steenkamp after the couple argued. Pistorius could be sentenced to life in prison is he’s found guilty of murder.
