Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to five-years in prison on Tuesday for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Per ESPN:

Delivering her sentence, Judge Thokozile Masipa cited the "gross negligence" the double-amputee Olympic runner showed when he shot Steenkamp multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home in February 2013.

Pistorius, who had cried and retched during his trial, was unemotional as he stood to hear his sentence. His prison term begins immediately, and he was led down a flight of stairs and toward holding cells before leaving the South African courthouse in the armored vehicle.

Pistorius could be released after 10 months in jail to serve the remainder under house arrest, according to legal experts.
Pistorius is 27 years old.
