Johannesburg: South African prosecutors will appeal the verdict and sentencing of Oscar Pistorius, who was handed a 5-year prison term after being convicted of culpable homicide, the country's National Prosecuting Authority said Monday.
"We are appealing it," said Nathi Mncube Mncube, a prosecution spokesman. "Both conviction and sentence."
Prosecutors will file papers in court, and more details about their appeal arguments will be available at that time, Mncube said. (Reeva had Decided to Leave Oscar Pistorius 'That Night': June Steenkamp)
