Doctors say Oscar Pistorius was mentally stable at time of shooting
The Oscar Pistorius murder trial is again in session after doctors decide the Olympian was mentally stable the night of the shooting.
A panel of doctors have decided that Oscar Pistorius was mentally stable at the time he shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in February of 2013. The findings were revealed in court Monday, as the Olympian's murder trial continued after a month-long break.
According to CNN, the doctors determined that Pistorius was not in a mental state at the "time of the commission of the offense that would have rendered him criminally not responsible of the offenses charged.
"Mr. Pistorius was capable of appreciating the wrongfulness of his act," the report went on to say.
Had the doctors ruled that Pistorius was unstable, the trial would have ended immediately with a not guilty verdict, according to the report.
Judge Thokozile Masipa decided last month that Pistorius be evaluated after the defense raised the issue that he suffers from a anxiety disorder that could have significantly clouded his judgment the night he shot Steenkamp.
Pistorius's defense has never argued that he did not pull the trigger. Instead, their version of events claims the shooting was accidental, as Pistorius had mistaken Steenkamp for an intruder.
