Oscar Pistorius: Decision expected in trial hearing today
The Oscar Pistorius hearing has entered a fourth day with a South African judge expected to decide today whether the Paralympic athlete can be let out on bail.
Pistorius is accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his Pretoria home, a claim he denies, stating instead he shot her by accident as he believed her to be an intruder.
The defence team have pointed to contradictory evidence given by one of the detectives working on the case, a factor they claim has undermined the prosecution's case.
But the prosecution counsel fear the 26-year-old Olympic gold medallist may abscond if bail is granted.
"This morning we're probably going to see the prosecution finalise their final arguments. The defence will then have the opportunity to have their final say," said Sky Correspondent Alex Crawford.
Meanwhile, the runner's coach Ampie Louw has declared he will return to training next week if he is released on bail.
Oscar Pistorius is ready to return to training but has no immediate plans to compete, says his agent Peet van Zyl.
Oscar Pistorius' uncle has cast doubt on the prospect of the Paralympian competing at this summer's World Championships.
