(NEWSER) – A South African judge has found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, in the shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp and declared him not guilty of murder and premeditated murder.
Judge Thokozile Masipa—who said yesterday she found Pistorius negligent—ordered him to stand before she delivered the verdict. The sentence for such a crime is at the judge's discretion, and it can range from a suspended sentence and a fine to years in prison.
Sentencing will be announced at a later date.
