Oscar Pistorius NOT guilty of premeditated murder


Judge Masipa has said there’s insufficient evidence to convict Oscar Pistorius of premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Not enough facts…

The judge said there simply are noy enough facts to send the runner to prison for a maximum of 25 years.


“The State has not proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of premeditated murder. There are just not enough facts to
support such a finding,” she said.


Judge Masipa told the court there was “no doubt” when Pistorius fired his gun “he acted unlawfully”,
but is still to rule on whether he is guilty of a lesser crime over Ms Steenkamp’s death.
