Pistorius won't go back to jail before new sentencing

PRETORIA, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius will remain under house arrest pending his sentencing for his murder conviction, after a South African judge granted bail to the Olympic athlete on Tuesday.

The country's Supreme Court of Appeal convicted Pistorius on Thursday of murdering girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013, overturning a lower court's conviction of the lesser crime of manslaughter. The appeals court then said the double-amputee Olympian should be sentenced by the lower court.
