Amanda Knox Acquittal Overturned

    In this Sept. 26, 2008 file photo, American murder suspect Amanda Knox is escorted by Italian penitentiary police officers to Perugia's court at the end of a hearing, central Italy. Italian news reports on Saturday, Oct. 18, 2008 say Knox, who is suspected in last year's slaying of her British flatmate Meredith Kercher, has again proclaimed her innocence. The news agencies, reporting from Perugia on a closed-door court hearing Saturday, said Amanda Knox greeted the judge in Italian, then spoke in English to deny any role in the slaying. Knox, her former Italian boyfriend, and a young man from the Ivory Coast are all suspects in the murder of the British student.   (AP Photo/Pier Paolo Cito, files)

    It’s not over yet, Amanda. Italy’s high court has overturned Amanda Knox’s acquittal, saying that the American must stand trial for the murder of her ex-roommate. Knox's American lawyer said that she's upset but is ready to fight and prove her innocence. It’s unclear whether Knox will return voluntarily to Italy or whether she’ll be extradited—there’s also a chance she may face trial in absentia. Originally convicted with Raffaele Sollecito, Knox’s boyfriend at the time, she was acquitted in an appeals court in Perugia in October 2011. Knox is currently a creative-writing student at the University of Washington.
