PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - The sentencing phase in the homicide trial of South African Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius has begun today in a court in Pretoria.

Last month the judge found Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide in the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013.

Pistorius' defense team is expected to argue before the judge that the double-amputee has suffered emotionally and materially for what he said was an accident and that he's remorseful.
