A prosecutor hammered at Oscar Pistorius' credibility at his murder trial Thursday, asserting that the star athlete had a string of unlikely excuses for why he wasn't to blame in the three gun charges he faces on top of murder.In the final hour of the day's proceedings, Nel said Pistorius was trying to imply that police had tampered with the scene, moving evidence around, and that Steenkamp fled from the bedroom after an argument with the athlete.Pistorius' answers to the accusations were short denials.Pistorius referred to the song in a cellphone message to Steenkamp that acknowledged her objections and has been included as evidence in the trial."I never got the opportunity to tell Reeva that I loved her," Pistorius said in a soft voice. He did not look at Nel while replying to the prosecutor's questions, instead directing his gaze to Judge Thokozile Masipa on the dais.Masipa will deliver a verdict because there is no jury system in South Africa.
