    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Geez, Roux is not going to cut anyone any slack - asks for phone records from the Col for his phone calls after court yesterday

    He wants to see if he was coached by the prosecutors or other investigators who are witnesses - that's my guess.

    Talking about the trace analysis dept to Col, the witness. Col has experience but doesn't work in that dept.

    Roux seems to think certified toolmark examiners work there but Col corrects him, they are in another dept.

    R: What qualifications do you have?

    Col not really answering the question.

    R: Not experience. I'm looking for qualifications.

    Col simply not answering, just reciting experience.

    Roux asking if Col agrees microscopic analysis essential for toolmark examination, Col says sometimes, when a screwdriver is used for example. Then points out he never claimed he is certified as a toolmark examiner.

    Isn't it normal that he would talk to the prosecutors? Is that AGAINST protocol?

    Yes, it's not supposed to happen while he's in the middle of his testimony - that would be like Nel asking to take a break to speak to the witness while Roux is questioning. You can't do that.

    I feel so sorry for this witness. He is hemming and hawing and apologizing. This is going to be a LONG day for him.

    Roux: It cannot be for you to have stated under oath that none of those exhibits appear.....

    He's caught witness saying he tried to find missing bits of door on one occasion, and saying he didn't do that on another, I think.

    Col's testimony is just a run of 'I didn't mean" this morning, and backtracking.

    R: My understanding is you did ask for it but you can't remember who you asked for it...you can only have asked for it because you wanted to examine the door.

    Col: "I cannot remember Milady.

    It refers to some kind of list?
