The Italian media was especially biased against her and the jury had full access to the sensationalistic reporting because they were never sequestered.
The Italian justice system is just sloppy.

Well, what was their motive? The prosecutor's theory is that it was the culmination of a Satanic sex ritual. This theory, by the way, was not the brainchild of the prosecutor, rather, it originated with an occultist blogger who claims to communicate with a dead priest. Not what I'd call a plausible motive.I'm honestly not convinced that Amanda and Raffaele had nothing to do with Meredith's murder...
This wouldn't have even gone to trial in America. The chain of evidence was broken in such an amatauerish fashion as to be laughable....but I do believe that most of the evidence against them was circumstantial and that there was more than reasonable doubt as to their guilt. They should have been acquitted.
The key piece of forensic evidence linking Raffaele to the murder scene (a clasp from the victim's bra) was not collected until SIX WEEKS after the murder.

As to the inconsistencies in her story, they are easily explained by the intense interrogation methods of the Italian police force, who induced her into a false confession, which she later retracted. I would also like to note that false confessions are not as uncommon as people think.
