Oscar Pistorius gets SIX YEARS for murdering Reeva Steenkamp but is likely to serve just three and could be out in 2019.

Fallen superstar Oscar Pistorius could be free in three years after a judge sentenced him for six years for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The one-time Olympic icon clutched at his family, savouring his last physical contact with them, as he was led down to the cells to await his return to prison.

Under the sentencing guidelines used by Judge Thokozile Masipa, the 29-year-old killer will be eligible to be considered for parole after serving half of the sentence.

Although the state were given the opportunity to announce an appeal against the decision, they declined to so.
