Judge Lays Down Rules for Oscar Pistorius Psychiatric Tests

Oscar Pistorius must report for a month-long mental examination starting next Monday, the judge in his murder trial said Tuesday.

The trial will not resume until June 30, judge Thokozile Masipa said.

The testing was triggered by the testimony of a psychiatrist who said that the sprinter has suffered from generalized anxiety disorder since he was an infant, stemming partly from the amputation of both of his lower legs because of a genetic defect.

Pistorius is accused of murdering his girlfriend, the model Reeva Steenkamp, in his home last year.
