Justice in Oscar Pistorius murder case

"Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of the murder of Reeva Steenkamp after South Africa's Supreme Court of Appeal overturned the previous conviction of culpable homicide.
Judge Eric Leach ruled Thursday that the Paralympic gold medalist should have foreseen that his firing of a gun would have killed whoever was behind the door in his bathroom, regardless of whether he thought it was [his girlfriend]  Steenkamp or an intruder.
State prosecutors appealed the verdict of culpable homicide, seeking a conviction on more severe charges."
His claim that he thought his girlfriend was a burglar locked in a bathroom was incredible.At most, he faces 15 years in prison.
