South African Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius was released from prison under house arrest on Monday, nearly a year after he was jailed for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius is expected to spend the remainder of his five-year sentence at his uncle's home in Pretoria, as ruled by a South African parole board on Thursday. His parole conditions include restrictions on gun ownership and continued psychotherapy sessions. He is also expected to do a period of community service.

Steenkamp's relatives say they think Pistorius, 28, is "getting off lightly". Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide, or manslaughter, of his 29-year-old girlfriend in October last year. After shooting her at their home in February 2013, he claimed he had mistaken her for an intruder.
