JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius is set to be released from prison on parole in August after serving 10 months for culpable homicide in the killing of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, a family member said.

"Oscar will be released on parole by the end of August," a Pistorious family member who did not want to be named told Reuters. Pistorius started his five year sentence in October last year.
