• PISTORIUS RETURNS TO COURT AFTER MENTAL EVALUATION

    0

    PRETORIA: After a six-week break, the murder trial that has gripped South Africa and the world resumes on Monday when Paralympian Oscar Pistorius returns to the dock after a month of psychiatric tests. The star sprinter has tried to argue that a “generalized anxiety disorder” contributed to him shooting dead his 29-year-old model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year. He admits shooting Steenkamp with a 9mm pistol through a locked toilet door, but says it was a mistake as he thought she was an intruder coming to attack him in the dead of night. The prosecution argues it was cold-blooded murder following a row between the young couple, and has gathered evidence of a tempestuous relationship.
