Pistorius was sentenced to five years jail in 2014 for the culpable homicide of Steenkamp, but will go under house arrest due to good behaviour according to the BBC.
However, the double-amputee athlete will again face the possibility of a murder conviction when he faces a state appeal in Novemeber.
The South African could be sent back to prison for a minimum of 15 years.
Steenkamp’s family did not attend Pistorius’ parole hearing, but submitted a written statement to the parole board.
“Incarceration of 10 months for taking a life is simply not enough,” the statement said, according to AP.
“We have forgiven Mr. Pistorius even though he took the life of our precious daughter, Reeva.
“We do not seek to avenge her death and we do not want Mr. Pistorius to suffer; that will not bring her back to us. However a person found guilty of a crime must be held accountable for their actions.”
Pistorius became the first amputee to compete against able-bodied athletes at he 2012 London Olympics.
