FILE - In this Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011 file photo, Amanda Knox gestures during a press conference, in Seattle. A court in Florence that convicted Amanda Knox in her British 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 on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, issued a 337-page explanation for its January guilty verdicts against Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. Knox, 26, was sentenced to 28 ½ years while Sollecito, 30, received 25 years. Knox has been in the United States since 2011, when an earlier appellate trial that overturned her lower court conviction. Sollecito remains in Italy. The release of the court's reasoning opens the verdict to an appeal back to the supreme Court of Cassation. If the high court confirms the convictions, a long extradition fight for Knox is expected. Kercher, 21, was found dead in a pool of blood in the apartment she and Knox shared in the town of Perugia. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File)
