JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A British man accused of arranging the killing of his wife on their honeymoon in South Africa has been found fit to stand trial for murder after psychiatric observation.

Shrien Dewani had been held at a psychiatric hospital in Cape Town since his extradition from Britain in April.

The South African Press Association on Friday quoted prosecutor Rodney de Kock as saying experts concluded Dewani is not mentally ill. The news agency quoted defense lawyer Francois van Zyl as saying he did not object to the finding.

Dewani's bride, Anni, was found shot dead in an abandoned taxi in the Cape Town area in 2010. Dewani is accused of hiring men to kill her and make it look like a botched carjacking. Three men have been convicted for the murder.
