Oscar Pistorius' Murder Sentence Doubled

Published on 24 Nov 2017, 13:43
Double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius' sentence was extended to 13 years and five months by a court Friday for the murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. South Africa's Supreme Court of Appeal increased the sprinter's prison term after prosecutors successfully argued his original sentence of six years was "shockingly lenient.” The athlete said he thought Steenkamp was a dangerous intruder. In 2015, they overturned Judge Thokozile Masipa's original verdict of culpable homicide — or manslaughter — and secured a murder conviction.
