Oscar Pistorius was yesterday cleared of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on the night of Valentine’s Day last year.

But on the second day of sentencing over the death of the 29-year-old model, he still faces the charge of culpable homicide – the equivalent to manslaughter in the UK – which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years.

Pistorius also faces three other unrelated charges – two for firing a gun in a public space, which could carry a sentence of five years in prison on each count, and one for illegally possessing ammunition, which could carry a sentence of 15 years in prison.
