    Amanda Knox: ‘I Did Not Kill’

    PERUGIA, ITALY - OCTOBER 03:  Amanda Knox arrives at Perugia's Court of Appeal the day of the verdict in her and Raffaele Sollecito's appeal of their murder convictions on October 3, 2011 in Perugia, Italy. American student Amanda Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in 2009 of killing their British roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy in 2007. The jury in their appeal is expected to retire to consider their verdict later today. They have served nearly four years in jail after being sentenced to 26 and 25 years respectively.
