Oscar Pistorius’ Jail Term For Killing Reeva Steenkamp More Than Doubled

South Africa's Court To Hear State's Appeal Against Pistorius In November

A South African court has increased Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius’s jail sentence for killing his girlfriend to 13 years and five months.
Prosecutors had argued that the six-year term for murdering Reeva Steenkamp was too short.

The Supreme Court of Appeal ruled his sentence be increased to 15 years, less time already served.

Pistorius claimed he shot dead Ms Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013 after mistaking her for a burglar.
