Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympic sprinter, will learn his fate Friday, as Judge Thokosile Masipa delivers the rest of the verdict in his trial for the killing of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius was cleared of all murder charges by Judge Masipa Thursday. Masipa pronounced that the case presented by the prosecution was based entirely on "circumstantial evidence" and that the state did not prove "beyond reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of premeditated murder."

The athlete however, could still face a conviction for culpable homicide, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 15 years in jail.

He also faces charges of illegally discharging a firearm in a public place and of illegal possession of ammunition.

Pistorius admits that he fired the shots that killed Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013, but claimed that he thought an intruder had broken into their home and was threatening his life.

In the first part of her ruling Thursday, the judge described Pistorius as "a very poor witness", saying that he was able to maintain his composure during questioning by his defense attorneys, but fell apart when he faced hostile questions.

There are no juries in trials in South Africa, so the judge will deliver the verdict in the case, assisted by two legal assessors.
