Pretoria - Only athlete Oscar Pistorius was screaming the night his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot, his lawyer Barry Roux said in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Witnesses could also not say it was Pistorius who was heard arguing, as claimed by witnesses the State said earlier it would call upon.
Roux said one of the residents who gave a statement about screaming lived 600m away.
Investigating officer Hilton Botha said police still needed to measure the distance.
Roux said Pistorius usually slept on the right side of the bed, which faced the balcony.
“But because of the pain in his shoulder that evening he slept on the left side,” said Roux.
He also disputed the State's claim of overseas property, submitted to support its claim that he was a flight risk.
“Let's cut it short, he does not have a house in Italy,” said Roux.
Pistorius has been charged with murder. - Sapa
