Oscar Pistorius Found Guilty Of Culpable Homicide

  • A South African judge found Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide (equivalent to manslaughter) in the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius shot her to death in his home on Valentine’s Day 2013; he claimed that he thought intruders were in his home. Yesterday, the same judge acquitted Pistorius of premeditated murder, which carried a sentence of 25 years, and homicide charges. His sentencing will take place in October. [New York Times]
