South African athlete Oscar Pistorius’s lawyers have lodged papers at the Constitutional Court urging a review of his murder conviction.

Pistorius killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013. A manslaughter verdict was overturned last month and a murder verdict introduced in its place.

The athlete is currently under house arrest.
