What's different? Pistorius and police on killing
JOHANNESBURG (AP) - There are several key points where testimony conflicts between the prosecution and the defense in the Oscar Pistorius case.
Police: Pistorius knew his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was in the toilet stall when he fired through the door.
Pistorius: The shooting was a tragic accident; he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder.
Prosecutor: Pistorius, a double amputee, took the time to put on his prosthetic legs and walk to the bathroom where he fired the gun.
Pistorius: He did not put on the prosthetics and was on his stumps and felt vulnerable when he shot through the toilet door.
HE DIDN'T NOTICE STEENKAMP WAS NOT IN THE BED?
Prosecutor: He had to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom and must have known she was not in the bed.
Pistorius: It was dark in the bedroom. He thought she was asleep in bed.
Police: Two boxes of testosterone and needles were found in the athlete's bedroom.
Pistorius' lawyer: It's an herbal remedy _ not a steroid or a banned substance.
WAS THERE AN ARGUMENT?
Police: The couple had an argument loud enough to disturb neighbors well before the shooting.
Pistorius: He and Steenkamp had gone to bed, falling asleep hours before the shooting.
Police: No calls for help to police or ambulance service on any of the four cell phones found in the bathroom and bedroom. Estate guards called Pistorius who told them he was "all right." The call was not disconnected and they could hear him crying.
Pistorius: He called the manager of the housing estate and asked him to call for an ambulance. He also called a private paramedic service. His lawyers say they have a fifth phone that the athlete used to make the calls.
