The murder trial of former South African Olympian Oscar Pistorius is set to resume Thursday in Johannesburg after months of gripping testimony that captured the world's attention.
On Thursday and Friday, both sides will summarize their versions of the shooting for the judge, who will determine the fate of the celebrity athlete.
Pistorius is charged with murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on the night of Valentine's Day last year.
The double amputee athlete, known as the "Blade Runner" for his prosthetic limbs, claims he mistakenly shot Steenkamp through a locked toilet door, believing she was an intruder in his Pretoria home.
Prosecutors argue that Pistorius deliberately killed Steenkamp after an argument.
If convicted on the main charge of premeditated murder, the sprinter faces a minimum of 25 years to life in jail.
Pistorius, a gold medalist Paralympian, rose to international fame when he competed alongside able-bodied runners at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
