Johannesburg: Guilty or not guilty? The verdict in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial will not be delivered so simply.
Judge Thokozile Masipa will first recount and analyze the evidence given by each of the nearly 40 witnesses in the criminal case that captured considerable international attention. The verdict on whether Pistorius intentionally killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp is expected to take hours, maybe days.
And if there are any convictions on the four charges Pistorius faces - murder and three unrelated firearm charges - sentences will only be decided later at a separate hearing.
