Pistorius, known as “Blade Runner” for the carbon fibre prosthetic blades he used to race, faces a minimum 15-year jail sentence.
The Supreme Court in December upgraded the 29-year-old Paralympian’s sentence on appeal to murder from “culpable homicide” South Africa’s equivalent of manslaughter, for which he had received a five-year sentence.
Pistorius was released from prison and placed under house arrest on Oct. 19, having spent one day less than a year behind bars for shooting dead model Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
