Just minutes ago Judge Thokozile Masipa found OscarPistorius guilty of “culpable homicide” after fatally shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a bathroom door on Valentine’s Day last year.The court did, however, clear Pistorius of the more serious charge of premeditated murder, saying that the state had failed to prove such a charge. In the judge’s words: “The state clearly has not proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of premeditated murder. There are just not enough facts to support such a finding.”
Sentencing for Pistorius is scheduled for October, at which time he could face up to 15 year in prison for culpable homicide.
