A prosecutor has urged an Italian court to take steps to make sure that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito would serve their sentences, if they are convicted of murdering British student Meredith Kercher.
Amanda Knox declared her innocence in her roommate’s 2007 murder in a highly unusual email to the Italian court hearing the case against her. The US former exchange student also said she was staying away from the trial out of fear of being wrongly convicted.
Amanda Knox has declared her innocence over the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher in an email to the Italian court hearing the case against her, and said she was staying away from the trial out of fear of being wrongly convicted.
An Italian prosecutor has demanded that an appeal court find Amanda Knox guilty of the 2007 murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, a killing he argued may have been rooted in arguments about cleanliness and triggered by a toilet left unflushed by the only man now in jail for the murder.
One of the jurors who overturned Amanda Knox’s murder conviction has said he was never convinced by the “conjecture” of the prosecution’s case and that he believed the US student and her co-defendant simply did not kill her British roommate.
