Amanda Knox, who was convicted by an Italian appeals court yesterday of murdering a U.K. student in 2007, probably will have to wait several months before a definitive ruling in the case, a criminal lawyer said.
Amanda Knox, a 24-year-old American jailed in Italy for the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher, told an appeals court deciding her fate today that she didn’t kill her British housemate, a friend with whom she’d “shared” her life.
Amanda Knox, who says she’s “haunted” by nearly four years spent in an Italian jail, won’t return from the U.S. for an appeals retrial for the 2007 killing of her British roommate Meredith Kercher, which starts today in Florence.
An order by Italy’s Supreme Court that Amanda Knox face a second trial on charges she helped murder U.K. student Meredith Kercher is unlikely to result in her extradition due to a U.S. prohibition on being tried twice for the same crime.
