(CNN) - The defense rested its case in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, and the trial is now adjourned until Aug 7.

That's when closing arguments will begin.

The Olympic track star is accused of murder in the February 2013 shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

He admits firing the bullets that killed her, but he says he mistakenly thought he was defending himself from an intruder.

Prosecutors say the two had an argument and he deliberately murdered her.

At the trial's conclusion, the judge will have to decide whether Pistorius genuinely made a mistake or deliberately murdered his girlfriend.
