Paralympic Athlete Oscar Pistorius Sentenced to 6 Years in Prison for Killing Girlfriend

Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to six years in prison by a South African court after murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp over three years ago on Valentine’s Day at his home, CNN reports.

The 29-year-old athlete has always claimed it was an accident, but lawyers argued he shot her deliberately after an argument. Barring any appeals, this will be the final ruling in the case that has lasted for years in the courts due to the high profile nature.

Back in 2014, Oscar was originally charged with manslaughter, but that ruling was overturned by a higher court.
