PRETORIA, South Africa The prosecutor in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius said the athlete gave conflicting evidence and that he fired deliberately

"The court must have a credible version from the accused, credible, even to the low sense of reasonably possibly true," Gerrie Nel said as he presented his final arguments Thursday at the High Court in Pretoria, the capital. "But if there’s no reasonably possibly true version that the court can accept, the defense will not come into it."

He has said he thought Steenkamp was an intruder when he fired four shots through a locked toilet cubicle door in a bathroom at his home, and later said he discharged the weapon in reaction to hearing a sound.

"If the accused’s version about what happened that night is rejected, it means there was no perceived intruder whatsoever," Nel said.
Pistorius’s father, Henke, was in court for the first time since the trial started, as was Steenkamp’s father, Barry.
The court will hear final arguments from the state and the defense, led by Advocate Barry Roux, Thursday and Friday, Judge Thokozile Masipa said. Both parties filed their final argument documents, which Masipa prohibited from being published before they are presented in court, after she adjourned the Paralympian’s hearing on July 8. These will form the basis of her questioning over the next two days, said Marius du Toit, a criminal defense lawyer based in Pretoria.
"These arguments are so important," he said by phone on Aug. 4. "This is your last effort in swaying the court’s opinion. This is crucial for both the state and the defense." Once the state has argued its case, the defense will have a chance to refute, and each party will then have an opportunity to respond, he said.
Throughout the trial, which started on March 3, defense lawyer Roux portrayed Pistorius as a victim of crime who was in a loving relationship with Steenkamp.
