UPDATE: 09/11/2014 8:28am  Judge Masipa says that many people are affected by crime but do not sleep with weapons under their pillows.  She says that a reasonable assumption that could be made when firing four shots into a small space is that those shots could be lethal.

UPDATE: 09/11/2014 8:24am  The judge says Pistorius had no other means to defend himself.

No verdict has been issued yet but the judge says that premeditated murder has not been proven in the Oscar Pistorius case.

The verdict is being read live at this hour and we will update this story with the latest as soon as the reading of the judge's findings is complete.

Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa is still delivering her verdict.  She has said that while he appears to have acted "unlawfully," Pistorius' actions do not appear premeditated.

Masipa says that while the fact that Pistorius fired four shots into the bathroom door behind which his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, was standing, his intent to shoot does not imply an intent to kill.

The "Bladerunner," as the Olympic and Paralympic star is also known, still faces murder and weapons charges.
