Before delivering her verdict, Judge Masipa asked Pistorius to stand and then proceeded to read through all four counts. She discharged him on two counts (both related to the unlawful use of a firearm) but crucially charged him on two counts: contravening a subsection of the Firearms Control Act, and culpable homicide.

Culpable homicide can carry a sentence of 15 years. No word yet on when Masipa will sentence Pistorius.
