Oscar Pistorius' conviction for killing his girlfriend has been changed from manslaughter to murder. An appeal judge said last year's verdict was "confusing and flawed" and the athlete will now be re-sentenced by the original court and will almost certainly go back to jail. "It's over now," Reeva Steenkamp's father told South African media.
The appeal centred on dolus eventualis - a Latin legal phrase meaning the act was carried out knowing it would lead to death and the accused went ahead anyway.
Pistorius is serving a five-year sentence for shooting to death girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.
He was released from jail Oct. 19 to serve the remaining four years of the sentence under house arrest.
