Oscar Pistorius sentenced to six years for Killing Reeva Steenkamp.



South African Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend in 2013.

He had faced a 15-year sentence. Both the prosecution and defence can appeal.

The verdict comes after his initial conviction to manslaughter was changed to murder last December after the prosecution appealed.

Pistorius, 29, shot Reeva Steenkamp four times through a locked toilet door in February 2013.
