Pistorius defense rebuts police testimony, citing inconsistencies

Today prosecutors in South Africa had their chance to dissect the track star's claims that he accidentally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the bathroom on Valentine's Day.

  • Prosecutors scoffed at the idea that Pistorius was not wearing prosthetic legs at the time of the shooting. They say forensics will show was standing and fired through the top part of the door.
  • Prosecutors also claim they found two boxes of testosterone and needles in the bedroom.
  • They maintain they have witnesses who heard non-stop shouting that appeared to be coming from the Pistorius home not long before the super model was killed.
  • Police also said they found blood on a cell phone and cricket bat.

OutFront tonight: CNN's Robyn Curnow was in the courtroom and has the story. And Erin Burnett spoke to criminologist Laurie Pieters who has attended the bail hearings and criminal defense attorney Ted Simon.

Pistorius vs. police versions of story

The question that is central to Oscar Pistorius case, was Pistorius lying when he said he was not wearing his prosthetic legs when he fired the gun?

In order for the prosecution to prove Pistorius committed a premeditated crime, they need to prove he strapped on his prosthetics before Reeva Steenkamp was killed.

Our Tom Foreman is OutFront with more on Pistorius and the prosecution's version of events that lead up to the shooting.
