Italian Court

Latest Italian Court Items
  • FILE - In this Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014 file photo, Raffaele Sollecito leaves after attending the final hearing before the third court verdict for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, in Florence, Italy. An Italian court that convicted Amanda Knox in her roommate's 2007 murder says the wounds indicate multiple aggressors, and that the two exchange students fought over money the night of the murder. The appellate court in Florence on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, issued a 337-page explanation for its January guilty verdicts against the American and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. The release of the court's reasoning opens the verdict to an appeal back to the supreme Court of Cassation. If it confirms the convictions, a long extradition fight for Knox is expected. She has been in the United States since 2011 when her earlier conviction was overturned.
