Johannesburg, South Africa: Prosecutors have filed their final arguments before the high court in the case of murder accused Oscar Pistorius.

According to News24, the final argument in the Pistorius`s murder trial will now be heard on August 7.

Paralympian Pistorius is on trial for shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on February 14 last year.

He claims he shot her by accident through the locked door of his toilet in his Pretoria home, thinking she was an intruder about to emerge and attack him.

The State (prosecutors) contends he killed her during an argument.

Pistorius underwent a month-long psychiatric evaluation at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital, after which the court heard he did not suffer from general anxiety disorder.
