FILE - This is an undated file photo released by the Italian Police of 22-year-old murdered British university student Meredith Kercher. 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. British student Meredith Kercher, 21, was found dead in a pool of blood in the apartment she and Knox shared in the town of Perugia. (AP Photo/Italian Police, File)

Amanda Knox prepares to leave the set following a television interview, Friday, Jan. 31, 2014 in New York. To many Americans, especially in her hometown of Seattle, Amanda Knox seems the victim, unfairly hounded by a capricious foreign legal system for the death of a 21-year-old British woman. But in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, others see her as someone who got away with murder, embroiled in a case that continues to make global headlines and reinforces a negative image of Americans behaving badly _ even criminally _ abroad without any punishment. As she remains free in the U.S., these perceptions will not only fuel the debate about who killed Meredith Kercher in 2007 and what role, if any, Knox played in her death, but also about whether U.S. authorities should, if asked, send her to Italy to face prison.
