    Pistorius trial

    A psychiatric panel and a psychologist have found that Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, who is facing charges of murdering his girlfriend, is not mentally ill, the state prosecutor said Monday. There are conflicting accounts as to what happened in the home of Pistorius in the early hours of February 14, 2013. The star athlete, charged with the murder of his model law graduate girlfriend, says he shot 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp repeatedly through a locked bathroom door at night by accident, having mistaken her for a burglar. Prosecutors accuse Pistorius of premeditated murder.VIDEOGRAPHIC
