Pistorius back in court for sentencing
Oscar Pistorius appeared in a South African court yesterday for a sentencing hearing after the doubleamputee Olympian was convicted of murdering girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Defence lawyer Barry Roux argued for some leniency and called a psychologist who evaluated Pistorius to testify. Hearings are expected to last several days before Judge Thokozile Masipa announces the sentence later in the week. The minimum sentence for murder in South Africa is 15 years in jail, though a judge can reduce that sentence in some circumstances.
