Oscar Pistorius leaves prison early after he was jailed for killing Reeva Steenkamp

The Paralympian star’s lawyers successfully argued that he should be released on house arrest after serving a year of his five-year jail sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. Pistorius was initially due to be freed in August, but intervention by the minister of justice led to a series of delays before a parole board decision last Thursday. However, he still faces an appeal in the Supreme Court next month, which if successful, will upgrade his charge to murder and see him re-jailed for a minimum of 15 years.
