The state case
Hilton Botha, investigating officer, testifies:
Gunshots look like they were fired downwards No emergency numbers were dialled from mobile phones confiscated by police Witness for the state, who heard arguing, lives 600 m from the Pistorius house Police confiscated two packets of testosterone Pistorius did not lay any complaints with police regarding death threats Pistorius knew Steenkamp was in the bathroom and murdered her

The defence case
Adv Barry Roux submits:
Pistorius fired shots without wearing his prosthetic legs Pistorius called Netcare911 Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp were deeply in love; they were sleeping and Steenkamp went to the toilet while Pistorius was on the balcony It is a legal herbal substance used by many sportspersons, not steroids Pistorius received death threats and was a victim of crime. He went to see the Hawks about this Pistorius thought Steenkamp was in bed and that there was an intruder in the bathroom
