Former suspect brands Knox a 'sex-loving she-devil'

Amanda Knox, convicted of killing British student Meredith Kercher, has been dismissed a lying, sex-loving she-devil by the man she falsely accused of the murder.

Amanda Knox, convicted of killing British student Meredith Kercher, has been dismissed a lying, sex-loving she-devil by the man she falsely accused of the murder.

Knox is currently awaiting the outcome of an appeal against her conviction in Italy, but a lawyer for Patrick Lumumba told the hearing she was not to be believed.

Early in the investigation into the killing, Knox accused Mr Lumumba of killing Miss Kercher, who shared an apartment with Knox in Perugia. He was briefly jailed, but later cleared.

Mr Lumumba's lawyer Carlo Pacelli told the appeals court that Knox had a double soul: The clean-faced woman sitting before judges, and the she-devil who loves "wild sex".

Knox maintains police pressure led her to accuse Mr Lumumba.
