As the prosecution in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial rested its case Tuesday, a member of the star athlete's family told journalists from the front row of the public gallery, "He's ready" to take the stand. Pistorius is expected to take the stand Friday, but his legal team remained cagey. "We'll see about that," defense lawyer Kenny Oldwadge said.
