Pistorius to confront 'very own 9/11' on judgement day
The judge at murder accused Paralympian Oscar Pistorius' trial has decided to deliver her verdict on September 11, which has reportedly been branded as the South African athlete's 'very own 9/11'.
After hearing the defence blowing holes in prosecution's allegations on the final day of the trial, Judge Thokozile Masipa has retired to consider more than four hundreds pages of summing up arguments from both sides, Sky News reported.
The Judge has said that she would deliver her verdict on September 11 after considering 4,000 pages of evidence with her assessors.
Pistorius faced trial for murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year. The double amputee maintains that he did not kill his girlfriend deliberately but mistook her for an intruder in his Pretoria home, the report added.
