It's a double trouble for the Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius as the murder sentence has been increased to 13 years from 6 years by the South African Supreme Court.
Oscar Pistorius was arrested on the charges of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013 on Valentine's Day. Though Oscar Pistorius tried to defend his act as a mistake. He has insisted that he was trying to protect her. In an interview to the Television, he said he fired believing that an intruder was in the house but unfortunately it killed his girlfriend.
"All of a sudden I hear a noise, at the toilet. I presumed it was the toilet door opening and before I knew it, I'd fired four shots," he said.
