A South African judge sentenced Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius to six years in prison for his girlfriend’s murder — closing yet another chapter in a case that has transfixed the nation.

Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp at his home in an upscale Pretoria neighborhood in the early hours of Valentine’s Day three years ago.

The same judge originally convicted him of manslaughter after months of hearings, but a higher court changed that to murder in December.
Barring an appeal, it will be the final chapter of a saga that began on that fateful February morning in 2013 — when Pistorius fired four bullets through his bathroom door.
