After three years legal work, South African Paralympic athlete, Oscar Pistorius, was sentenced to six years imprisonment on Wednesday.
He shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steencamp, in 2013 and has since faced the weight of the law.
Pistorius was given the sentence on Wednesday after being convicted of murder.
An earlier five-year jail term for manslaughter was overturned on appeal in December 2015.
Pistorius repeatedly shot 29-year old Steenkamp, after she barricaded herself in the bathroom of his home in Pretoria on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
The athlete, who was amputated as a baby, and got fame competing with prosthetic legs in the Olympics, said he mistook Reeva, who was a model, for an intruder.
Pistorius said he took action out of fear about his vulnerability.
He appeared on Wednesday at North Gauteng High Court after a three-and-a-half year legal battle.
Judge Thokozile Masipa, who also gave the first sentence that was overturned, said Wednesday that mitigating circumstances, such as rehabilitation and remorse, outweighed aggravating factors for deviating from the prescribed 15-year minimum sentence for murder.
Though prosecution and defence can appeal the new sentence, defence team said Pistorious would not appeal.
