BREAKING: Italian court finds Amanda Knox guilty of killing roommate Meredith Kercher
— Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) January 30, 2014
An Italian court announced that Amanda Knox has been found guilty of the murder of Meredith Kercher.
From the New York Times before the verdict was announced:
Ms. Knox will not be in the courtroom. She will await the verdict in her hometown, Seattle, where she has been living since an appeals court reversed her murder conviction in October 2011. Last year, the Court of Cassation, Italy’s highest court, vacated the appellate court ruling and ordered a new trial, which began last fall, propelling Ms. Knox — and her former boyfriend and co-defendant, Raffaele Sollecito — back into the news.
Knox was sentenced to 28 years in prison after the retrial:
