But looking at the fact that there was substantial evidence pointing towards ‘compelling circumstances’, Pistorious was given a lenient sentence.



Pistorius, on February 14, 2013, had accidentally shot Steenkamp through a toilet cubicle door.

 

He claimed that he had mistaken her for an intruder, while prosecutors claimed that he had intentionally killed his girlfriend after an argument.
