Pretoria: A South African judge today ordered Oscar Pistorius to undergo up to 30 days of psychiatric tests to establish if he is "criminally responsible" for killing his girlfriend on Valentine's Day 2013. Thokozile Masipa said the Paralympian sprinter should report to Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria as an outpatient each work day morning and remain there until 4:00pm.

He will be tested to see "whether he was capable of appreciating the wrongfulness of his act or acting in accordance with appreciation of the wrongfulness of his act," said Masipa. (Pistorius torn apart after shooting girlfriend)
