Court Held Oscar Pistorius Guilty of Murder


Johannesburg: Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of murder after a South African appeals court overturned an earlier manslaughter verdict, reported BBC.

He killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013 after shooting her four times through a locked door.

He is currently under house arrest after spending a year of his five-year sentence in jail. Pistorius will now have to return to court for a new sentence to be decided.
