PRETORIA, South Africa – Prosecutor Gerrie Nel labeled murder-accused Oscar Pistorius "deceitful" and an "appalling witness" while making his case for a life sentence during Thursday's closing arguments.

The prosecutions says, regardless of who the Paralympian meant to shoot through this toilet door on Feb. 14 last year, he is guilty of premeditated murder. The star athlete is on trial for the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the pre-dawn hours of Valentine's Day.
