Pistorius trial resumes after psychiatric tests

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - The murder trial of Oscar Pistorius has resumed after a one month break.

Mental health experts evaluated the athlete to determine if he has an anxiety disorder that could have influenced his actions when he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The judge has received reports from a panel of one psychologist and three psychiatrists who assessed whether the double-amputee runner was capable of understanding the wrongfulness of his act when he shot Steenkamp last year.

Pistorius says he killed Steenkamp after mistakenly thinking there was an intruder in his home. The prosecution says he killed her after an argument.
