0706-oscar-pistorius-tmz-01Ex-Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to 6 years in prison for the 2013 killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp ... after his initial manslaughter conviction was upgraded to murder.

He was convicted of manslaughter in 2014 and was living under house arrest as part of a 5 year sentence -- but the conviction was overturned and upgraded to murder.

McGillis tells TMZ she walked into her North Carolina home Friday night to find a woman standing in her kitchen with a young girl. Kelly says when she asked who the lady was ... she said Kelly had been stalking her on Twitter.

Kelly's baffled ... she says she's never met the intruder nor had any interaction with her. 

The actress says she tried to escape, but the woman attacked ... knocking Kelly to the ground, scratching her and pulling her hair. During the struggle, she managed to set off her car alarm which scared the intruder just long enough for Kelly to break away.  


She says she screamed for help from her front yard, but no one -- including a neighbor she says was home -- came to her rescue. Instead, she had to drive down the road to someone else's house to call 911.

Police arrived and busted Laurence Marie Dorn for burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and battery, and interfering with emergency communication.

She's still in jail on a $60k bond. 

Omar Mateen Gay Rendezvous Evidence Captured On Hotel Security Cameras

6/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0622_omar-mateen_gay_lover_myspace_UnivisionPortions of Omar Mateen's alleged hookup with at least one gay man were captured on surveillance cameras at an Orlando hotel ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at the Ambassador Hotel tell TMZ, Mateen was seen on camera footage recorded December 14, 2015 around 11 PM. We're told the video bolsters the claims of the heavily disguised man who told Univision he met up with Mateen 15-20 times at the hotel between November and December.

Our sources say the video shows Mateen walk to the front desk, speak to a staffer and then walk around a corner toward the room where the anonymous man says he was staying during their rendezvous.

We're told management showed the video to staffers and asked if anyone recalled seeing Mateen. The only person who noticed him is a guy who works the night shift.

We're told the FBI went to the Ambassador Tuesday night and took a copy of the surveillance footage. 

The Bureau wouldn't confirm, but the video could go a long way to figuring out if Mateen attacked a gay club as part of a twisted revenge plot.
