Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius, jailed for killinghis girlfriend, is to be freed from prison to house arrest next Tuesday, a South African parole board says.
He was sentenced to five years in prison in 2014 after being found guilty of culpable homicide, or manslaughter.
He shot Reeva Steenkamp through a locked bathroom door but said he thought she was an intruder.
The prosecution has appealed, saying he should instead be convicted of murder.
That case is expected to be heard on 3 November.
