Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will have to wait another month to find out his fate after his murder trial was put on hold for another four weeks.

The sports star returned to court in South Africa on 30 June (14) after a six-week break during which a panel of mental health experts deemed him fit to stand trial for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year (13).

The trial continued for a week as the defence wrapped up its case, but the proceedings were halted again on Tuesday (08Jul14).

The court case will resume for closing arguments on 7 August (14).

Pistorius, 27, admits shooting Steenkamp dead at his home in Pretoria, but insists he mistook her for an intruder and denies a charge of murder.
