Oscar Pistorius convicted of murder in death of girlfriend

A South African appeals court has convicted Olympian Oscar Pistorius of murder.

The decision overturns the previous manslaughter conviction. That charge is in connection to the death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius was recently released from prison, but he could be sent back for at least 15 years.

Pistorius claims he thought Steemkamp was an intruder when he shot her in 2013.
