Pistorius Trial: Victim’s Cousin Spoke to Court
The 27-year-old double amputee, who was one of the biggest names in world athletics, was last month convicted of culpable homicide for killing Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
Pistorius, who said he shot Steenkamp after mistaking her for an intruder, faces anything from a suspended sentence or community service to 15 years in jail.
“This has ruined our whole family. It has ruined Uncle Barry and Aunty June. Reeva was everything to them. They adored her,” Kim Martin told the court, referring to Steenkamp’s parents.
