PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- A married couple who lived next to the house where Oscar Pistorius fatally shot his girlfriend testified Tuesday at the athlete's murder trial about the night of the killing, saying they both heard a man crying loudly in a high-pitched voice and calling three times for help.

Michael Nhlengethwa and his wife Eontle were Pistorius' next-door neighbors and summoned to testify by the Olympian's defense, which is trying to cast doubt on previous witness accounts of a woman screaming in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14, 2013. The couple said they never heard a woman's voice.
