Oscar Pistorius leaves court. 12 Sept 2014Oscar Pistorius faces up to 15 years in jail for culpable homicide

The parents of Reeva Steenkamp say “justice was not served” after South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was acquitted of murdering their daughter.

June and Barry Steenkamp told NBC News of their “disbelief” that the court had believed Pistorius’s version of events.

Judge Thokozile Masipa found him guilty of the lesser charge of culpable homicide, saying the state had failed to prove he intended to kill.

Pistorius has been allowed bail ahead of sentencing on 13 October.
