very much. Breaking news in the Oscar Pistorius trial. His defense team finally resting its case this morning. The judge announcing that the next phase in the trial and ABC's lama Hasan has the latest. Good morning, lama. Reporter: Good morning. After four months of dramatic twists and turns and delays in the murder trial this morning taking just minutes, the defense wrapping up its case adjourning till August 7th with a verdict possible at the end of August. This morning the defense finally resting its case. We closed the case for the defense. Reporter: The court adjourning until August 7th when final arguments will be heard, this watch more than four months of ferocious questioning. I made a mistake. You killed reeva steenkamp. That's what you did. Reporter: Dramatic evidence. The crime scene was absolutely not as it should have been. Reporter: High emotions. I screamed get the Out of my house. Reporter: And chilling earwitness accounts describing what they heard the night Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his model girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. It was blood-curdling. It was something that leaves you cold. Reporter: The drama even spilling outside the courtroom. Australia's channelrevealed this haunting video Sunday showing Pistorius running without his prosthetic legs reenacting what were his movements that fateful night even extending his right arm and clenched fist as if holding a gun and shows him demonstrating steenkamp's position after he shot her, slumped over in the bathroom and later how he struggled to move her. Pistorius' defense team which hired "The evidence room" for preparation only says it was obtained illegally and calls the airing of it a staggering breach of trust and invasion of the family's privacy. That video was never shown in court so not part of the evidence for the judge. It's unlikely to play a role in the final verdict. Both sides will now begin preparing their final arguments. Pistorius' team hoping to prove the blade runner was vulnerable that night mistaking his girlfriend for an intruder while the prosecution painting the picture of a cold-blooded di ed killer.
