A magistrate may rule Friday in Oscar Pistorius' bail hearing, deciding if the double-amputee athlete can be freed before trial or if he has to remain in custody over the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp.

The prosecution was expected to complete its arguments opposing bail as the hearing, which should have been completed Wednesday, goes into a fourth day.

Pistorius is charged with one count of premediated murder over the Feb. 14 killing of Steenkamp. He says the shooting was accidental because he thought there was a dangerous intruder inside his home.

Pistorius' coach, Ampie Louw, says he's considering putting Pistorius back in training if he's bailed to allow him to "get his mind kind of clear."

Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair will decide if Pistorius is freed with conditions.
