PRETORIA, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius was accused of making a "sinister" remark to a friend of Reeva Steenkamp in the courtroom Tuesday during a break at his murder trial. Matt Beleskey Jersey . Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?" The accusation by Kim Myers provided a bizarre twist during the trial of the world-famous double-amputee Olympian, who is facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for shooting dead Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, at his home last year. Pistorius, 27, denies murder and says he killed Steenkamp by mistake thinking she was an intruder when he shot her multiple times through a closed toilet door. He also denied to reporters in the courtroom that he made any comment to Myers. Pistorius said he hadnt spoken to members of the Myers family for weeks, despite sitting a few feet away from them during proceedings. Myers lawyer said she told him it happened. Myers was approached by Pistorius and he made the remark to her in a "very sinister way," the lawyer for Myers told The Associated Press. Attorney Ian Levitt said Myers was "shocked" and did not know what it referred to. Levitt said she found it "extremely disturbing." "Its important to confirm this. It was in front of witnesses. Journalists have witnessed this," Levitt said of the alleged comment. Levitt was not in the courtroom but said Myers phoned him to report it. Reporters said Pistorius apparently made a comment to Myers as he walked close to the court benches reserved for family and friends of both Pistorius and Steenkamp. Levitt added that he made a complaint to state prosecution officials, although officials at South Africas National Prosecuting Authority said they would not be acting on the report. The Myers family was very close to Steenkamp. Steenkamp lived with them after moving to Johannesburg to further her modelling career and they referred to themselves as her second family. They have attended much of Pistorius trial. Pistorius lawyer, Brian Webber, said Pistorius also told him that the allegation regarding the remark was untrue. "Ive asked the client and he denies that he said it," Webber said. During trial proceedings, two women who lived on either side of the house where Pistorius killed Steenkamp were called by the defence as witnesses and were asked to make high-pitched wails while testifying. The defence was trying to show that Pistorius cries on the night of the shooting could be confused with a womans screams. The prosecution maintains that Pistorius killed Steenkamp intentionally and after she screamed during a loud fight. Other neighbours testified that they heard a woman screaming before and during the sound of gunshots -- evidence of the heated argument between the couple, according to prosecutors. The defence says only Pistorius screamed, first to warn off a perceived intruder and then in desperate panic after realizing he had shot Steenkamp by mistake through the stall door in his darkened bathroom. In total, three next-door neighbours were summoned by the Olympians defence on the 27th day of testimony. They all testified that they heard a mans high-pitched cries, but not a woman screaming. The neighbours were briefly cross-examined by chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel who sought, simply, to show that they had heard events after the fatal shooting and their testimonies were irrelevant to a possible fight between the couple. During the testimony, Pistorius sat on his wooden bench looking impassively at times at his former next-door neighbours, who all described him as friendly and a good neighbour. His legal team says they could wrap up presenting his defence by next Tuesday. Jake DeBrusk Jersey .

Now in its 10th season, Real Salt Lake has made the playoffs the last six years, winning the MLS Cup in 2009. Until overtaken in the MLS record books early last year, Real Salt Lake held the league mark for consecutive home wins at 29. Rio Tinto Stadium was an impregnable fortress from June 2009 to May 2011. Toronto (2-0-0 this season) has a 1-5-0 lifetime record in Sandy, Utah. RSL (1-0-2 this season) was also the first MLS team to reach the CONCACAF Champions League final, losing to Monterrey 3-2 on aggregate in 2011. Last season Real Salt Lake made it to two finals but lost both: beaten in the MLS Cup by Sporting Kansas City in an agonizing penalty shootout and 1-0 by D.C. United in the U.S. Open Cup. There has been stability on the sidelines with Jeff Cassar, who has been with the team since May 2007, moving up the ladder to head coach last December after Jason Kreis became the first head coach of New York City FC. Cassar is the third head coach in RSL history. Toronto was on coach No. 5 in Year 4 and is currently on its eighth manager in Ryan Nelsen. RSL captain Kyle Beckerman arrived in 2007 in a trade from the Colorado Rapids. The midfielder with the distinctive dreadlocks credits coaching and a little luck for the franchises success. "We were able to get players into this team that were ready to be coached by a coach like Jason and Jeff Cassar and Robin Fraser (a former RSL assistant coach who is now with the New York Red Bulls)," he said Thursday. "It just so happened that we were able to get a group of guys together that ... really just needed a good environment -- an ownership that cared, a coaching staff that did the right thing. A lot of the guys were coming from places that didnt do the game right. "A lot of us, that core group thats still here, it was a breath of fresh air that we really needed. And we just took full advantage because we knew exactly the opportunity that was in front of us, because wed had it the opposite way, where the owner doesnt care or the coach just doesnt get it. "So I think we lucked out a little bit that we had the core in the same place, here in Salt Lake, tthat was just absolutely ready to explode and take full advantage of what was in front of us. Custom Boston Bruins Jerseys. And thats what we did." The 31-year-old Beckerman is joined on the team by fellow U.S. internationals Nick Rimando (a goalie who came on board in 2007) and Luis Gil (a midfielder who joined in 2010). Other veterans include defenders Nat Borchers (2008) and Chris Wingert (2007), midfielders Ned Grabavoy (2009) and Javier Morales (2007) and forwards Robbie Findley (two stints since 2007) and Alvaro Saborio (2010). Players want to come to winning clubs. And RSL does a good job checking out new talent. "They want to bring in not only good players but good people," said Beckerman. Toronto FC has followed the same road this off-season, with marquee signings Jermain Defoe, Michael Bradley, Gilberto and Julio Cesar all fitting in. Beckerman acknowledges that he respects Torontos search for success. "The thing that I really admire about Toronto is that they wont stop. Theyve kept at it. Theyve kept trying to fix and get the right recipe. And it doesnt seem like theyre going to stop any time soon. Theyre going to keep going and keep spending until they get the right recipe. "And I admire that. Thats something a lot of other teams would love to have that. With the fan base, theyve been loyal there and theyve stuck with them through tough times. The ownership and what theyre doing there, is kind of a reward to that loyalty and giving them a successful team. "Time will tell if this is the right one. But it seems so far that theyve brought in the right players so far. So I think its definitely on the up and up over there." Like Toronto, the early days were bleak in Salt Lake. The team went 5-22-5 with just 20 points in its inaugural season in 2005. In 2005-06, the fledgling franchise endured a league-record 18-game winless streak. But it didnt take long for Real Salt Lake to turn the corner. It had 39 points in Season 2 and 40 in Season 4, going 10-10-10 and reaching the 2008 playoff semifinals. In 2009, it was another 40-point season and the 11-12-7 team went on to win the title. Since then, RSL has collected 56, 53, 57 and 56 points. In contrast, Torontos points total since entering the league in 2007 is 25, 35, 39, 35, 33, 23, and 29. The two teams meet Saturday.
