Oscar Pistorius

Not mentally ill

30 Jun, 2014

A psychiatric assessment finds Pistorious was not mentally incapacitated when his girlfriend was shot and killed in their home in February, 2013.  The report by a panel of  independent doctors states:

Mr Pistorius was capable of appreciating the wrongfulness of his act.

Had he been found to be mentally incapacitated at the time of the incident the trial would have ended with a verdict of not guilty by reason of mental illness.
