Sentencing proceedings for former paralympian and convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius are expected to start in the High Court in Pretoria on Monday. 

Sentencing procedures have been set down for a week before Judge Thokozile Masipa, who originally sentenced Pistorius in October 2014. 

The process would be similar to a trial, and the defence and State would be able to call witnesses to argue in aggravation and mitigation of sentencing, and could then cross-examine them, lawyer William Booth said.

n the early hours of February 14, 2013, Pistorius shot Steenkamp four times through the locked door of the toilet in his Silver Woods Country Estate home. He claimed he thought there was an intruder behind the door and that Reeva was still in bed.

The video below was streamed to YouTube by eNCA.
