RECAP: Oscar Pistorius convicted of murder

10 June, 05:50 PM

Next week, the matter of Oscar Pistorius murdering Reeva Steenkamp will be heard in the North Gauteng Court.

In December 2015, the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) overturned the manslaughter conviction against Oscar Pistorius and replaced it with murder.

It found Judge Thokozile Masipa erred when applying the dolus eventualis rule and described Pistorius as a poor witness, when handing down the SCA ruling.

The athlete and his legal team attempted to thward the revised murder conviction, even approaching the Constitutional Court. However, on Monday, Pistorius will face sentencing for murder.

He briefly appeared in court in April, when he was granted bail. Pistorius has been on parole at his uncle's house from when he was granted him bail in October 2015.

Watch for more.
