South Africa to appeal Oscar Pistorius 6-yr murder sentence

The South African government will appeal Oscar Pistorius' 6-year murder sentence, Talk Radio 702 said on Thursday.

The prosecution had pushed for a minimum sentence of 15 years, but Judge Thoko Masipa gave him the lower sentence in July.

The Paralympic gold medalist was sentenced to jail for six years in July for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on February 14, 2013.
