JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- The murder trial of Oscar Pistorius moved closer to a verdict on Tuesday when the defence ended its case. In early August the judge will hear final arguments that will highlight opposing portraits of the Paralympic athlete -- a gun-obsessed egotist who shot girlfriend Reeva Steekamp in a rage or a vulnerable figure with a disability who pulled the trigger in a tragic case of mistaken identity. The trial has transfixed South Africans and others around the world who recall the double-amputee runner competing on carbon fiber blades at the 2012 Olympics in London. The triumphant image of Pistorius racing alongside able-bodied athletes contrasts with the anguished spectacle in the Pretoria courtroom, where he faced a blistering interrogation by the prosecutor and sometimes wailed and retched in apparent distress, spittle dripping into a bucket at his feet. Pistorius, 27, was among several dozen witnesses, ranging from neighbours who heard screams on the night he killed Steenkamp, to experts who talked about the trajectory of the four bullets he fired through a closed toilet door to a former girlfriend and a sports physician who treated the star athlete for years. Pistorius says he killed Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, by mistake, thinking an intruder was in the toilet and about to attack him; the prosecution says he shot her after a Valentines Day argument last year. Defence lawyer Barry Roux said he had finished calling witnesses, and that some people did not want to testify for the defence because of the publicity surrounding the case. Roux said he chose not to ask Judge Thokozile Masipa to compel them to appear, and also noted that a psychiatrist who evaluated Pistorius for the defence recently suffered a heart attack was not able to testify. "We close the case for the defence," Roux said. Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel then said the prosecution will file closing arguments on July 30 and the defence will do so on Aug. 4. He and Roux agreed to return to court on Aug. 7-8 to give final arguments before Judge Thokozile Masipa, who instructed that the media should not report on the legal summaries of either side until the final arguments start in court. Anyone responsible for a document leak is a "thief" who is undermining the interests of justice, said the red-robed judge, who is a former journalist. Once final arguments occur, Masipa is expected to announce a further break during which she will deliberate on a verdict with the help of two legal assistants who flank her on a dais during court proceedings. The period of one month granted for legal teams to prepare final arguments will allow them to pore over the lengthy transcript of testimony, documents submitted by experts and other information in a complex trial, said Kelly Phelps, a senior lecturer in the public law department at the University of Cape Town who has closely followed the case. In April, the judge had said the court record for the Pistorius trial was already almost 2,000 pages. The trial, which began March 3, included a break of a month during which a group of mental health experts observed Pistorius and concluded he was not suffering an anxiety disorder when he killed Steenkamp. Pistorius, who is free on bail, faces 25 years to life in prison if found guilty of premeditated murder. He could also be sentenced to a shorter prison term if convicted of murder without premeditation or negligent killing. Additionally, he faces separate gun-related charges that the prosecutor has tried to use to strengthen his narrative of a pattern of dangerous and reckless behaviour by Pistorius, who once enjoyed lucrative sponsorship deals. Pistorius was born without fibulas, the slender bones that run from below the knee to the ankle. Parts of his lower legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. The last witness to testify was the athletes sports physician, Wayne Derman. He said Pistorius feels anxious, vulnerable and hindered by his disability, part of the defence effort to explain why he fired on a perceived intruder and was allegedly unable to flee. Nel, the prosecutor, countered that poor, homeless and older people can be vulnerable and said Pistorius was able to protect himself by living in a gated complex with security guards and an alarm system, and had a strong network of family and friends. The most dramatic stage of the trial was in April, when Nel questioned Pistorius for five days in a grueling cross-examination. At one point, Pistorius appeared to become emotional and said: "My life is on the line." Nel quickly responded: "Reeva doesnt have a life anymore."

Kesler added that the rumours are "completely false" that he asked to be traded - recently or ever.TORONTO - Jonathan Crompton is 6-1 as Montreals starting quarterback, thanks to John Bowman and the rest of the Alouettes defence. Crompton was 19-of-28 passing for 219 yards and a TD as Montreal earned an important 20-12 win over Toronto on Saturday night. But it was the Alouettes defence that anchored the teams fourth straight win by continually harassing Ricky Ray and keeping a potent Argonauts offence without a touchdown before 16,834 spectators at Rogers Centre. Its important to get every win because of how tight it is in the East, said Bowman, the veteran Alouettes defensive lineman. We came here with the intention of winning and getting after the quarterback and thats exactly what we did. We didnt get a lot of sacks but we forced a lot of errant throws, we forced some tough throws and they made some good receptions. But in the end we didnt give up a touchdown and got the win. Montreal (7-8) moved into a tie for first in the East Division with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-8). Its defence allowed just four field goals and effectively shut down a Toronto offence that had scored 140 points in its previous four games despite losing defensive linemen Gabriel Knapton and Aaron Lavarias to injury. Our defence has been playing well the past few weeks, Crompton said. You cant say enough good things about them. Theres not a lot you cant say about them right now. Toronto mustered just 19 total yards offensively in the third quarter alone. But after rallying the Argos from a 17-point deficit last week in a 34-33 win over Hamilton, Ray literally fell just short of doing so again Saturday as he was stopped on a third-and-one at the Montreal 35 with 1:27 remaining. We knew what play they were going to run, Bowman said. We stood tall. Still, the Argos had many chances late in the game. They appeared in business when a pass interference call on Gerald Brown put them at the Montreal 23 with 12:09 remaining to play. But Montreal successfully challenged the call, forcing Toronto to punt. Toronto got the ball back at the Montreal 47 after Aston Whiteside recovered a Crompton fumble. But the Argos settled for Swayze Waters 37-yard field goal at 6:45 that cut the Als lead to 20-9. Toronto got another break when it took over at its 52-yard line after James Yurichuk blocked Whytes punt with 5:17 remaining. Waters 48-yard field goal at 11:50 cut Montreals lead to 20-12. After turning the ball over on downs, Toronto got it back for the last time at its 16-yard line with 24 seconds remaining. But Brown ended the comeback hopes with an interception. Toronto mustered just 283 net offensive yards and Ray, who came in as the CFLs passing leader, finished 25-of-39 passing for 202 yards with the pick. Ray said the overturned pass interference call was big. That couldve put us down deep and if we couldve scored iit wouldve been a real momentum builder, Ray said of the reversed call.dddddddddddd To have that call and have it taken off the board kind of gave them the momentum. Added Argos coach Scott Milanovich: It was a factor for sure, we were at least in field-goal range. But we still had opportunities. Toronto (6-9) suffered its first loss in four games to drop to third in the East, making its next two contests crucially important. The Argos host Hamilton next weekend, then travel to Montreal on Nov. 2 needing to win those games to clinch both season series and solidify their post-season run. Toronto, Hamilton and Montreal are essentially playing for two playoff spots due to the crossover. The B.C. Lions (8-7) are fourth in the West but would secure the No. 3 seed in the East if they finished the regular season with a better record than the Eastern conferences third-place squad. Montreal, which began the season 1-7, visits Ottawa on Friday night before hosting Toronto. Montreal coach Tom Higgins credited the Alouettes players for the teams amazing turnaround. They believed in the message that was presented to them from the start of training camp that we are a good football team, there is talent here, he said. Youve got to learn to play together and understand the ebbs and flows of the game and they did that beautifully and its paying huge dividends. Despite his stellar record, Crompton hasnt been lights-out for Montreal. He still hasnt recorded a 300-yard passing game and has thrown one more TD pass (eight) than interception, but Higgins says thats to be expected with a CFL sophomore. I think people forget he is truly a young quarterback learning and getting better each and every time, he said. It just bodes well for us. Tanner Marsh and S.J. Green had Montreals touchdowns. Sean Whyte had the converts and two field goals. Waters had Torontos field goals. Players and coaches on both teams teams wore pink-coloured items as part of the CFLs program to bring awareness to womens cancers.

NOTES - Offensive lineman Jarriel King and defensive back Branden Smith didnt dress for Toronto while defensive end Brian Brikowski and slotback Andrew Smith were Montreals scratches . . . Heading into weekend action there had been 83 challenges by CFL coaches, with 25 being successful . . .

According to the CFL, just two teams have ever won their division without being over .500, the 85 Hamilton Tiger-Cats (8-8) and 01 Edmonton Eskimos (9-9) . . . Ray has never finished the season leading the CFL in TD passes. He came into Saturdays game with a league-high 27. ' ' '
