Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius is due to be released on parole on August 21, prison authorities in South Africa said.
Oscar Pistorius, 28, will be released after serving 10 months in prison for shooting his girlfriend Rieva Stenkamp in February 2013.
The amputated double athlete was jailed for five years in 2014 for the guilty murder of Rieva Steenkamp.
Reeva Steenkamp’s parents said the time he had spent was “not enough to take a life”.
A state appeal against Oscar Pistori’s acquittal on murder charges is due in November.
Under South African law, Oscar Pistorius could be released under “correctional supervision” after serving his sixth sentence.
The decision is likely to mean a spell under house arrest for Oscar Pistorius.
Oscar Pistorius shot and killed Rieva Steenkamp through a locked bathroom door at his home in Pretoria, believing she was an intruder, he told the trial.
In March, a Johannesburg court blocked attempts by his legal team to stop prosecutors’ appeal.
Prosecutors say Oscar Pistorius should have been convicted of murder – if convicted, he could face a much longer prison term.
Tanya Cohen, a lawyer for Riva Steenkamp’s parents Barry and June, said that while they both forgave Oscar Pistorius, “ten months is not enough.”
“Furthermore, it does not send the right message and serves as an appropriate deterrent.”
