Oscar Pistorius stepped down from the witness box Tuesday after five grueling days of cross-examination that raised serious doubts about his account of killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.For nearly a week, Nel had spent hour after antagonizing hour dragging Pistorius over the coals, accusing him of lying, tailoring evidence and even crying to avoid tough questions.Nel – nicknamed "the bulldog" – demanded Pistorius acknowledge he made more than a mere "mistake," as the athlete insisted time after time and maintained he shot the model and aspiring actress on Valentine's Day after thinking she was an intruder.Concluding his questioning, Nel demanded to know who to blame for Steenkamp's death if Pistorius would not take responsibility.Pistorius' attorney Barry Roux indicated the defense may finish calling its witnesses by mid-May if the postponement is granted.
