    neither do I, and many of my colleagues discussed this issue at length. I don't recall anyone with a competence in Criminal trial or appellate law believing

    1) the trial in italy met basic due process (Procedural and substantive) requirements

    2) that the Italians had a plausible theory of motive

    3) that the evidence was properly gathered

    4) that she was actually guilty

    As far as I'm aware, the evidence is incredibly flimsy, and I can't believe they could get an indictment based on that evidence. I guess things are a lot different in Italy.

    Its idiotic. Of course I have the benefit of having actually reviewed dozens of federal criminal trial transcripts, appellate briefs and attending 100+ appellate oral arguments on criminal cases. The more you know the more you realize how buggered up that procedure was in Italy

    And what about the supposed evidence of the DNA on the knife? That is so stupid. Who is to say she didn't cut herself and throw the knife in the sink? I cut myself all the time when I'm cutting things.

    If the knife was one that had never been spotted in that living area it might be more convincing. But that wasn't the case.

    remember-most people don't plan on what to do if they come upon someone they are living with being hacked to death with blood everywhere. ITs easy to sit back and say "if she isn't guilty why didn't she…..

    Definitely, she could have been in shock. It can't have been a pretty sight.

    Also, is the alleged motive still that they killed Meredith because she refused to participate in an orgy? That's not a very good motive to kill a person either.

    as if they were going to engage in an orgy with that convicted loser who also was convicted of it.

    the whole motive thing is a complete non-starter

    Well, yes. She's now a fugitive, and it makes for interesting discussion too.
