The man accused of the attempted murder of Miranda Kerr’s security guard and of stalking the supermodel, has been ordered to spend 16 months in a psychiatric hospital until he’s declared fit to stand trial.
Former boxer Shaun Haywood, 31, appeared in court wearing a padded vest and was told he must do time in a California institute until he is found ‘competent’ to face up to charges that could see him sentenced to life in prison.
He must return to court every 90 days while living in the facility, 9News reported.
But if he is still not declared fit to stand trial after that time, the charge will be dropped and he will be held indefinitely until a mental health court says it’s safe for him to go free.

It has been almost three years since Haywood scaled the fence onto the Australian model’s Malibu ranch on October 14, 2016, in an attempt to deliver a letter to Kerr, prosecutors said.
When he was caught by the security guard, Haywood – a fellow Australian – stabbed him in the eye.
The guard shot Haywood several times, including once in the head.
Kerr, who bought the four-bedroom home for a reported $2.15million in 2014 after her split from Orlando Bloom, and their son Flynn were not home at the time.
Both men were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
The security guard was stabbed below the eye but was seen walking on to the LA County Sheriff’s Department chopper unaided after the attack.
Haywood was arrested on October 20 and was also charged with assault with deadly weapon and mayhem.
Twice in March, Haywood frustrated a Los Angeles judge by refusing to leave his jail cell.

Haywood is holed up in downtown LA’s Twin Towers correctional facility and had declined to attend his past two court dates.
He is being held on $1.05 million bail.
Haywood was declared fit to stand trial last September after concerns about his mental state, but his lawyer indicated Haywood would enter not guilty pleas by reason of insanity.
Kerr, 36, who has since married Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel, no longer lives at the house. She is currently pregnant.
At the time of the incident, the buff athlete and scholar of ‘ancient religions’ from the Central Coast region north of Sydney, Haywood had recently started using the names of the Greek god of lust, Eros, and Egyptian sun god, Ra.
Dubbed ‘Eros Ra Sunandra’, he described himself online as an ‘ascendant master’, sharing religious words with his 11,500 followers on Instagram and even purportedly writing a ‘guide to spiritual enlightenment’ under his pseudonym Eros.

And he also collected pictures of the former Victoria’s Secret model Kerr in folders online and followed her on every social media account possible – on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
His Pinterest account includes a board titled ‘PsychewenuFlyn’ filled with photos of Miranda Kerr.
Another folder collected pictures of ‘models’, who he described as ‘kingdom archangels’.
Haywood, who once sold himself as a ‘celebrity trainer’, has been living between Australia and the United States in recent years following the death of his mother.
A relative said he had been ‘estranged’ from his family ‘for many, many years’.
An acquaintance, who knew him from his home region and spoke to him about spiritual matters, said Mr Haywood had been studying ancient religions which had multiple gods, such as the Egyptian belief system.
Mr Haywood has a tattoo sprawling over his left pectoral muscle which said: ‘Let us pray not to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them’.
