    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Pistorius Trial to Resume After Mental Evaluation #43

    For the past month, world-class athlete Oscar Pistorius has spent his days inside a high-security government psychiatric hospital, an imposing complex that is one of South Africa's biggest and oldest mental health institutions.

    The South African Olympian is accused of gunning down his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, through a locked bathroom door in his home on Valentine's Day of last year. His murder trial was halted when a defense witness testified Pistorius suffers from a psychiatric condition that affects is perceptions of danger.

    Pistorius has admitted to the shooting but pleaded not guilty to pre-meditated murder, alleging he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder.

    On Monday, when the trial resumes, he'll be one day closer to finding out whether the next place he'll be spending time is prison.

    I have some beautiful homemade jelly/jam to go with these croissants but I can't share it with you - my neighbour made it and she's put her address on the label!

    Hello everyone!

    I almost forgot that we'd reconvene this morning!

    I read recently that the psych eval findings were unanimous.

    I'm looking forward to hearing the results.

    WOW. I stand corrected. I thought it was going to be a very short day where they would talk about future court hearings. But sounds like they are diving back in. I am so curious.

    I took a nice nap since the court starts here at half past midnight. My husband thinks I am nuts.

    Filling in time- "Relaxed Oscar returns to the dock"

    "Relaxed Oscar returns to the dock", 30 June South African Times

    "Staff described him as pleasant and as being "relaxed" during his time at the institution.

    A psychologist, who may not be named as only the hospital CEO can speak to the media, said he had sat "outside in the garden quite a bit".

    "He was very engaging with staff and other patients. The first 10 days, when he was being escorted to the hospital, he was very tense. You could see his irritation.

    "But afterwards, when he was no longer escorted, he was very relaxed, even charming. Not like what he looked and behaved like on TV in court.

    "I saw him several times outside. He spoke to lots of people, laughing and joking with some of the staff and patients."
