Oscar Pistoris has finally won his battle to be moved from the prison system to house arrest, as the parole board granted the request for his transfer next week.

The decision would see the Paralympian released on the 20th of October, and represents a u-turn after the parole board blocked an earlier decision to free him to house arrest.

Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison last year after being charged with culpable homicide in the killing of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

Pistorius shot her behind a locked door, saying he thought she was an intruder in the home. The prosecution tried to get a charge of murder filed but the judge reduced it to the lesser charge of culpable homicide.

The prosecution would be in court in November, to try and get a conviction for murder.
