Cape Town - A psychiatric report on murder accused Oscar Pistorius is ready for collection at Weskoppies hospital, it was reported on Friday.

North Gauteng High Court Judge Thokozile Masipa ordered that Pistorius be evaluated by four specialists at the Pretoria psychiatric institution.

Three psychiatrists and one clinical psychologist were to evaluate Pistorius to determine whether his general anxiety disorder and his disability had an effect on him when he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year.

The Paralympian’s evaluation would not exceed 30 days, Masipa said. According to a New Age report, Pistorius was last at Weskoppies last Friday.

A report with the specialists’ findings will be ready for collection later on Friday, reported Eyewitness News.

Defence advocate Barry Roux has said he will call three more witnesses before concluding his case.

Pistorius claims that he accidentally shot Steenkamp through a locked toilet door because he believed there were intruders in his home. The State has argued that the athlete killed his girlfriend in a fit of rage.

The trial is set to resume on Monday. Read News24's special report on the trial.
