Oscar Pistorius says he refuses to accept that he murdered his girlfriend
In his first interview since he shot and killed his girlfriend on Valentine's Day of 2013, Olympian Oscar Pistorius said he refuses to accept the fact that he murdered Reeva Steenkamp, according to South Africa's Eyewitness News.
Pistorius gives his account of what happened on that night and why he was convicted to investigative journalist Mark Williams-Thomas in the special, titled “Oscar Pistorius: The Interview.” During his trial, Pistorius claimed he acted in self-defense and mistook Steenkamp for a burglar.
In the interview, Pistorius says that he would serve 10 years in jail for killing Steenkamp, but refuses to accept that he murdered her.
Watch a clip from the interview below. (Viewer's discretion is advised):
Pistorius is living in his uncle's mansion before being sentenced for murder. Pistorius was originally convicted of manslaughter but was upgraded to a murder by an appeals court last December as it was ruled that the original judge made a “fundamentally flawed” judgment in her ruling.
The interview will air on Britain's ITV on June 24.
