Oscar Pistorius Found Not Guilty of Murder
Olympic track star Oscar Pistorius did not intend to murder his girlfriend,
Reeva Steenkamp, a judge has ruled. After a lengthy and high-profile
trial and deliberation in South Africa, Judge Thokozile Masipa announced
her verdict on Oscar’s murder charge on Thursday, saying that, after
reviewing the evidence, she had concluded that he was not guilty of the
murder charge. However, Oscar still faces a manslaughter charge of
culpable homicide, and the judge’s ruling on that charge will be
announced at some point on Thursday.
Oscar killed his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day in 2013 while she was
locked in his bathroom. The double-amputee sprinter, who gained fame for
completing in the 2012 Olympics, claimed that he had shot into the
bathroom because he thought that Reeva was an intruder.
