The Amanda Knox trial that whole world is watching and listening is over. No pen is broken, as Perugia appeal court overturns charges of Meredith Kercher s murder on Amanda Knox and her former Italian lover Raffaele Sollecito.
Its finally over and Amanda Knox is a 24 years old free woman, as Italian court clears her and her former Italian boyfriend of British student Meredith Kerchers brutal murder in 2007.
Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito have been acquitted of the murder of UK student Meredith Kercher following a successful appeal in Perugia, Italy, after the pair had spent nearly four years in Italian jail since they were convicted of killing the 21-year-old, from Coulsdon, south London, in 2007.
The four year odyssey Amanda Knox has endured since her roommate Meredith Kercher was brutally murdered in what prosecutors called a “drug fueled sex game” is over.
Although she was convicted along with her year old Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and sentenced to 26 years in prison, an appeals jury assisted by two judges in Perugia, Italy has cleared Amanda Knox of the murder.
The news leave the third person, Ivory Coast resident Rudy Guede, a black man, who was convicted separately as the sole murder convict.
England and American media have been clearly at a war of words all along the 4 year long Amanda Knox trial period, and England blames Italian courts incompetence, while the American side states Italian court had done the right thing. It is yet to know what the media from Ivory Coast has to say, if anything..
