    It's a dual trial and the verdict will be for both. It's possible they may get different jail sentences if found guilty. On top of all the charges they both are accused of, I think Amanda has the additional charge of slander for claiming that police hit her during questioning. I don't know if it will released today, the deliberations went on quite late. I'm checking the Italian news websites, but no news as of yet.

    That's true. All they need is a majority vote, which I think is so wrong.

    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

    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.
    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.

    BTW, why the hell were jurors wearing sashes with the Italian colors?

    Be that as it may, the bungled cover up they attempted didn't help them. In a real struggle where an assailant got in by breaking the glass, there would be glass under the mess, not on top as the struggle comes after. I agree though that the knife argument was weak. Especially since they both lived there are likely used it for mundane things on a weekly basis.

    It's a facist, Italian, kangaroo court. The US needs to have that lady shipped home.
