Prosecutors had said Pistorius’†five-year jail term given to him for shooting dead his girlfriend is nowhere near enough punishment. They also want the double-amputee track star to be convicted of a more serious charge. They had originally sought conviction on a charge of murder.
Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, in the death of Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius didn’t attend the hearing, which began Tuesday.
