Pistorius trial: Defence alleges police tampering

The chief defence lawyer for Oscar Pistorius delivered final arguments in the athlete’s murder trial on Friday, alleging that Pistorius thought he was in danger when he killed girlfriend Reeva and also that police mishandled evidence at the house where the shooting happened.  At one point, lawyer Barry Roux slapped his hand on the desk in front of him to mimic a sound that the double-amputee runner has said he heard on the night of her death. Roux argued, explains why Pistorius thought an intruder was in his home and that he had to defend himself by opening fire.
