Defense lawyer Brian Webber says that it's likely Oscar Pistorius will take the stand, but he did not say when the athlete would testify.

The prosecution in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial closed its case on Tuesday and the defense asked for time to approach some of the 107 state witnesses who did not take the stand.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel declared on Tuesday "this is the state's case," setting the stage for the defense to start its arguments when court resumes on Friday. Defense lawyer Brian Webber says that it's likely Oscar Pistorius will take the stand, but he did not say when the athlete would testify. ("I'm scared of you," Reeva Steenkamp told Oscar Pistorius in text message)


Pistorius shot dead his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year. Pistorius says he mistook her for an intruder.
