Oscar Pistorius’s jail sentence for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp has been increased from six years to 13 years and five months.
South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal increased the sentence after the state argued that his original sentence of six years was “shockingly lenient”.
The athlete was not in court for the ruling.
The court handed down the minimum 15-year sentence prescribed for murder in South Africa, subtracting the year Pistorius has already served.
Pistorius was jailed in July 2016 after being found guilty on appeal of murdering Ms Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013.
