Amanda Knox, America, and the World will soon know the verdict in the third segment of a trial where Knox was first found guilty, then not guilty on appeal, and now the case is with the Italian Supreme Court.
The case centers around the murder of Knox’ roommate Meredith Kercher, a college student from the UK. The charge was that she was killed by Amanda Knox and her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollicito, from Italy.
At first, Knox said she didn’t kill Meredith Kercher – and Italian police tried to get her to point a finger at a black man, Patrick Lumumba, who ran the bar she worked at in Perugia, Italy, but that didn’t stick. But she was found guilty, along with Raffaele Sollicito and with Rudy Guelde, who was charged with raping Kercher, and spent four years in prison, and then the appeal trial came that found her not guilty.
