A South African appeals court has convicted Oscar Pistorius of murder, overturning a lower court's conviction of the double-amputee Olympian on the lesser charge of culpable homicide for shooting his girlfriend to death in 2013.

Justice Lorimer Leach of the Supreme Court of Appeal delivered the ruling by the five-judge appeals court Thursday in Bloemfontein and said the trial court, the North Gauteng High Court, should impose sentence.

Pistorius killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early morning of Valentine's Day. He insisted he thought she was an intruder behind a door in his home. The prosecution said Pistorius shot Steenkamp during an argument.

Leach said regardless of who might have behind the door, Pistorius should have known someone could be killed if he fired.

Looks like Oscar could be getting released on probation in August, after serving 10 months in prison for shooting his girlfriend.

He'll probably write a book called "If I intentionally wanted to murder Reeva, this is how I'd do it", à la O.J Simpson.
I don't think he cares, he is already fucking rich.
He can life a live that most of us can only dream of, without ever working again.
And this despite being a murder.

Re: "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend dead

Five years in jail is an OK punishment. But only if he spends five years in jail, not like last four years in house arrest.

Re: "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend dead

This case was really a joke. This guy should be orderer to either gas chamber or perpetual.

Only escaped a stronger sentence because as an amputated person he has special needs.

Law should be the same for everybody.

i wonder whether you have followed the case closely, he FOR SURE knew it was Reeva who was in the toilet. He fired 4 shots at the door, if his intention was not to kill, what was that for?

IMO the sentence is too lenient. He shot at that door four times believing somebody was in there. His intent was to kill, and that he did. His actions were beyond wreckless, and his actions ended the life of another.

I'll be very disappointed if he does not spend 2 years in prison, beyond that I'm at ease.
