Oscar Pistorius To Go Through Psychiatric Test.

The volatile South African sprinter, on trial for murdering his girlfriend, was ordered by a judge Wednesday to undergo a 30-day observation at a mental institution.

Pistorius sighed and began tapping furiously on his cellphone after Judge Thokozile Masipa announced her decision.
The ruling means that Pistorius’ trial, which started March 3 and has attracted worldwide attention, won’t resume for at least a month — if not more.
“This is not about convenience but rather that justice is served,” the judge said.
Masipa issued a ruling after defense witness psychiatrist Merryl Vorster said the fallen Olympian has a “psychiatric illness” called general anxiety disorder.

That testimony, Masipa said, raises the “possibility that there may be diminished criminal responsibility.”
“Dr. Vorster's report cannot replace a proper inquiry,” the judge said. “It would be unwise for this court to make a decision without the help of qualified experts.”
The Pistorius family tried to put the best face on what could be a blow to his defense.
“As a family we are comforted by the thoroughness of this judgment,” said Pistorius’ uncle, Arnold Pistorius.
Both sides will return to court Monday to finalize arrangements for placing Pistorius at the 122-year-old Weskoppies Mental Institution in Pretoria.
