Pistorius reportedly began serving time last October after he was convicted of shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp – a model and law school graduate – on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
According to CNN, the former Olympic athlete said throughout his trial that he thought Steenkamp was an intruder when he shot her.
It’s also reported that last week a South African parole board approved Pistorius’ move to house arrest and correctional supervision for the next four years.
