Oscar Pistorius was sentenced in October 2014 to five years in prison for culpable homicide in the 2013 killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius, whose legs were amputated before his first birthday, was famed for his track career. Running on prosthetic blades, he won gold medals at the 2004 and 2008 Paralympics before competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where he ran in the 400-meter race and the 4x400-meter relay. Under South African law, he is eligible for parole after completing at least one-sixth of his sentence -- in this case, 10 months -- and had been expected to be transferred to house arrest in August 2015 at the recommendation of a parole board, but that is on hold until a formal Sept. 18 parole hearing.
