The Ontario County Sheriff's office has finished its investigation into the death of Kevin Ward Jr., who died from his injuries after he was struck by a race car driven by Tony Stewart during a race in August.
They have given the evidence they compiled to the district attorney, who will announce late next week what the next steps in the case will be.
Sentencing could still be weeks away. But how long could "The Blade Runner" spend behind bars? "Many culpable homicide charges do result in suspended sentences," says CNN legal analyst Kelly Phelps from South Africa, "and it will all depend on the individual features and characteristics of this particular case…"
Oscar Pistorius, who has shown plenty of emotion in court over the past several months, stood stoic in front of the judge Friday as she told him he had been found guilty of culpable homicide in the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
That means the judge determined her death was unintentional -- that Pistorius had indeed mistaken her for an intruder and was defending himself like he said -- but that the act of killing Steenkamp was still unlawful.
