Prosecutor says Pistorius acted methodically

Posted: Thursday, July 3, 2014 9:30 am

Oscar Pistorius reads in court, in Pretoria, Wednesday, July 2, 2014. Pistorius is severely traumatized after killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year and will become an increasing suicide risk unless he continues to get mental health care, the judge overseeing his murder trial heard on Wednesday. Defense lawyer Barry Roux read excerpts from a psychologist’s report that said the double-amputee runner is suffering depression and post-traumatic stress disorder and “his condition is likely to worsen” if professional treatment for those conditions is halted.
