Johannesburg: South African prison officials say Oscar Pistorius spent his first night in a single cell in the hospital wing of a prison in the capital, Pretoria. Prison commissioner Zebilon Monama told the South African Press Association that Pistorius seemed confused and tired when he entered the Kgosi Mampuru facility and was visited by the jail’s psychologist and chaplain on Tuesday evening. Pistorius shares the ward with eight other prisoners. The athlete had a medical examination before being locked in his cell. The hospital wing has routine 24-hour observation with two nurses on duty.
