Guilty, says BBC -
Amanda Knox guilty of Meredith Kercher murder
American student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend have been found guilty by an Italian court of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.
Knox was jailed for 26 years and Raffaele Sollecito, 25, for 25 years after a jury found them both guilty of murder and sexual violence.
Miss Kercher, 21, a Leeds University student from Surrey, was found with her throat slit in Perugia in 2007.
Knox, 22, had denied killing Miss Kercher during a sex game.
The verdict of the jury, who included two judges, was confirmed by the trial judge

It's really hard to say. I don't have all the facts and such which have been presented, but it didn't seem like a particularly strong case against her. Rather, it seemed mostly circumstantial with no real proof. But as I said, I didn't have all the facts; maybe there was enough evidence for the conviction. But I really like the American court system well better. Makes the State's job hard. I mean
Really? That doesn't seem to be a proper prosecution charge, and some of the evidence seemed doubtful. I don't know if justice was really served here.Prosecutors argued Seattle, Washington native Amanda Knox was a resentful American so angry with her British roommate that she exacted revenge during a twisted sex misadventure at their home two years ago.
BTW, why the hell were jurors wearing sashes with the Italian colors?
