The Oscar Pistorius pre-sentencing hearing is set to continue in the North Gauteng High Court this morning with the state expected to call a final witness.
Yesterday, the State prosecutor Gerrie Nel told Judge Thokozile Masipa the last witness would give emotional evidence in aggravation of sentence. Pistorius is being sentenced for murder after the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned his culpable homicide conviction for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. The National Prosecuting Authority says it wants Pistorius to spend a minimum of 15 years in jail.
