Accused girlfriend murderer Oscar Pistorius has been transferred into a NEW JAIL ... after officials in South Africa decided his old cell wasn't suitable for the double amputee's "special needs" ... TMZ has learned.

We spoke to a rep for the South African Police Department handling Oscar's living situation ... who told us, "Oscar has now been moved from the Boschkop Jail to the Brooklyn Police Station in Pretoria due to his handicap needs."

The rep explains, "The normal cell he was in was not suitable for Oscar so he was moved in order to accommodate to his special needs."

We're also told Oscar will no longer be allowed to accept visitors -- or home-cooked meals -- as he did during his first night in jail. Cops say Pistorius will only be allowed to meet with his legal team.

Officials say Pistorius is now "resting comfortably" in his new cell ... and will be checked on every 30 minutes.

Pistorius has been accused of shooting his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp inside of his South Africa mansion. Cops say he is the only suspect in the case.

This guy is nuts...Attempting to 'get away' from a murder he knows all too well... If he was startled by a supposedly 'intruder' maybe, one shot may get him away from a true murder, however, it's not the case. he shot her 4 TIMES! You don't shoot someone 4 times by ACCIDENT Moron. Someone ought to remove his entire legs for this, maybe 'bending over' in prison might just do the work. Good Luck Oscar. Say buh-bye to the good life.

Smells like a sequel for a Stallone movie.

You could do this one live on TMZ on Tuesday afternoon. 2 hours, then 15 mins for the jury 'tension'. Put a live vote on for Guilty or Nor Guilty. Have one for the 'mystery' questions like "Was he wearing Blades or Legs? Great headlines like Who's Stumped. Was it that she was allergic to roses or that he'd popped the question and she said no? Harvey Lawyers the Facts!

Well the court will decide. He's behind bars until court. Something is going on because they didn't let him go home.


Either way she's dead, he might as well be. His career is over. All the hope and insparation to other amputees that looked up to him is a total disappointment. Endorsements are gone.


Horrible all the way around. He is not getting any special treatment. No home cooked meals, no visitors other then his lawyers.


This is not cheating on wife or girlfriend, smoking dope or steriods, dui. This is a dead woman shot 4 times.

Didn't she know him well enough to realize his fear of intruders and love of guns? What was she doing until 4am when they say she arrived at his home? Did she have a key? I would think she would call out to make sure he didn't think it was an intruder.....

This is so very sad. I will reserve judgment until I see more evidence. Right now it appears to me to be a very tragic mistake; Oscar believed the person in his bathroom was an intruder. Home invasion robbery is very common in South Africa.
I wish for justice to prevail.

Yeah the lawyer and model was so obsessed by her love for Mr scream head competitive cripple hero, that she sneaked passed all the Class 3 armed guards, laser intruder barbed electric fence camera security along the special enclosed roads and up to the security bristling hideaway mansion with some Ferrero Rocher and some scented violin wax for his blades, and got shot four times in the face as she clambered in the bathroom window?

I live around the corner from Oscar. The only reason he was moved to another jail was so that he could be closer to his legal team for consultation with them.
