Oscar Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide in the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp Friday by a South African judge, who was sure to affirm the Olympic sprinter is not guilty of murder.

The defense team has yet to decide whether or not to appeal the judge's decision.

A lack of evidence was judge Thokozile Masipa's reasoning as he said there was not enough evidence to suggest Pistorius was aware of Steenkamp's in the bathroom at the the time of the shooting and that the defense had not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius had intended to murder her on Valentine's Day 2013.

He will be sentenced on Oct. 13.
