South Africa’s supreme court of appeal has found Oscar Pistorius guilty of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, overturning a previous conviction for culpable homicide.

The court has also ordered the original trial judge in Pretoria to impose a harsher sentence. No date has however been set for this hearing. The minimum sentence for murder is 15 years in prison. 

Pistorius is currently living under house arrest at his uncle’s home in Pretoria, having been freed from prison after serving less than a year behind bars. He will reportedly be allowed to remain in correctional supervision until a new sentence is handed down.

Pistorius shot and killed Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013, saying he thought she was an intruder.
