A South African court is to rule on whether the athlete Oscar Pistorius’ manslaughter verdict will remain.
Prosecutors appealed against the verdict and hoped to achieve a murder conviction.
Pistorius killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013 after shooting her through a locked door.
He is currently under house arrest after spending a year of his five year sentence in jail for a crime of culpable homicide, or manslaughter.
It had earlier been incorrectly reported that the court had already ruled the manslaughter verdict would remain.
