Just months after being released from jail and placed under house arrest for a conviction of culpable homicide the south African appeal court has convicted Oscar Pistorius of murder for the incident in which he admits shooting four times through a locked bathroom door and killing reeva steenkamp. In my view this is the correct decision as all evidence suggests he knew she was in the bathroom and even if his shaky story is believed he knew that someone was in the room as he admits himself and his actions were clearly disproportionate and reckless. He now faces a minimum jail term of 15 years. Sentencing is due to take place early next year.
