SENTENCE FOR PISTORIUS INCREASED FOR SHOOTING OF GIRLFRIEND IN 2013

Oscar Pistorius’s prison sentence for murdering his girlfriend has been more than doubled to 13-years and 5 months.

The former Olympian and Paralympian was given six years for shooting Reeva Steenkamp dead in 2013.

South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal says he should have got 15 – but has taken into account time already served.

Legal commentator Llewelyn Curlewis says that’s more appropriate.
