Oscar Pistorius plans to write book about girlfriend's killing

Oscar Pistorius's manager Peet van Zyl reveals that the Paralympic champion will write a book about what happened when he shot dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Oscar Pistorius's manager and agent Peet van Zyl has revealed that the Paralympic champion plans to write a book detailing his side of the story of how he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The 27-year-old was cleared of murder, but was found guilty of culpable homicide [manslaughter] at the High Court in Pretoria last week.

The double amputee denied murder by claiming that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he fired four gunshots through a toilet door at his home in South Africa in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year.

"He will write his own book," Van Zyl told the Observer. "We've discussed it. We've talked about ideas and concepts. I'm not going to go into details now."

Pistorius will be sentenced on October 13 and is expected to receive a custodial punishment.
