Prosecutor Argues to Reinstate Knox Guilty Verdict
The state's prosecutor is arguing his case that an Italian appeals court should reinstate the guilty verdict against U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox for the grisly 2007 murder of her roommate.
Prosecutor Alessandro Crini said Monday that Italy's highest court had "razed to the ground" the Perugia appellate court's 2011 decision to throw out the guilty verdicts, freeing Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito.
Knox and Sollecito were convicted in 2009 of killing Knox's 21-year-old British roommate, Meredith Kercher, and sentenced to 26 years and 25 years in jail, respectively.
They were freed on appeal in 2011. Knox, who spent four years in jail, did not return to Italy for the third trial. Sollecito was in court again Monday.
