BREAKING: Oscar Pistorius Gets 6-Year Sentence For Murder Of Girlfriend

Views

South African Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to six years in prison for the 2013 murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

There’s only one person who will ever know precisely what transpired in Oscar Pistorius’ home in an upscale Pretoria neighborhood in the early hours of Valentine’s Day three years ago.

As he arrived at a South African court to hear the verdict Wednesday, July 6, 2016 one thing seems certain: It’s the last day Pistorius will be a free man for a long time.

The world’s most famous Paralympic athlete is due to be sentenced for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Barring an appeal, it will be the final chapter of a saga that began on that fateful February morning in 2013 — when Pistorius fired four bullets through his bathroom door, killing Steenkamp.

The amputee track star said he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder and feared for his life when he shot through the door. The prosecution said Pistorius had a violent streak, and that he murdered his lover after a late-night argument.
