Oscar Pistorius has been denied parole.
The former Olympic and Paralympic athlete had applied for parole after serving half his jail term for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
Pistorius was convicted in 2014 and sentenced to 13 years in prison.
Earlier Ms Steenkamp’s mother warned that Pistorius was "not remorseful or rehabilitated" ahead of the hearing.
Meanwhile, Pistorius last year attended a meeting with Ms Steenkamp's father as part of South Africa's restorative justice programme.
Applying for parole last year, the 36-year-old claimed he had ‘done everything in his power to rehabilitate’.
Pistorius killed Ms Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013.
He claimed he believed she was an intruder in his home when he shot her through a bathroom door.
He was convicted of manslaughter in 2014 and sentenced to five years in prison; however, a higher court upgraded the convict to murder a year later and increased the sentence to six years.
That sentence was increased to 13 years by South Africa’s Court of Appeal in 2017.
