    Oscar Pistorius, the South African Paralympic star convicted of killing his girlfriend, will be released from prison next week after serving a year of his five-year sentence.

    Pistorius was convicted in 2014 of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013. During trial, Pistorius had contended that her death was an accident, and that he had believed a burglar was in his house when he fired through a closed bathroom door. After the trial, Pistorius was acquitted of the charge of murder, but convicted of culpable homicide, South Africa's equivalent of manslaughter. Pistorius is imprisoned at the Kgosi Mampuru II prison in Pretoria.
