Steenkamp Family Protest Pistorius Verdict

June and Barry Steenkamp expressed their disbelief that the court had believed Pistorius's version of events.

Judge Thokozile Masipa found him guilty of the lesser charge of culpable homicide, saying the state had failed to prove he intended to kill.

Pistorius has been allowed bail ahead of sentencing on 13th October, 2014.

Judge Masipa said the athlete had acted negligently when he shot his girlfriend through a toilet door, in the belief that there was an intruder.

The Paralympic sprinter denied murdering Ms Steenkamp after a row on Valentine's Day 2013, saying he shot her by mistake.
