Description

South African Olympic and Paralympic track star Oscar Pistorius was ordered on Tuesday to undergo a month of psychiatric tests to find out whether he was criminally responsible when he shot his girlfriend to death on Valentine's Day last year. Judge Thokozile Masipa told Pistorius he must report to Pretoria's Weskoppies hospital, one of South Africa's top mental institutions, as an outpatient for up to 30 days, starting on May 26. The Olympic star could face a life sentence if he is found guilty of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who he shot and killed at his high security home in Pretoria on February 14 last year. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/iRKfAA6PlYg/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com
