Amanda Knox Gives Statement Protesting Her Innocence

Amanda Knox

The retrial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia continues. While Knox has not returned to Italy for the retrial, their procedure allows for her to enter a statement through her lawyer. Her attorney read the statement into the record last week, denying that she had anything to do with Kercher’s killing. The trial will continue into early next year. Rudy Guede has separately been tried and convicted of the murder, but prosecutors theorize that Knox and Sollecito were involved. They were tried and convicted, but those convictions overturned, then a retrial ordered, which has been going on for several months. Recent evidentiary developments suggest that DNA does not implicate them in killing.

  1. the dna was there; and now it is not? Amanda & Raffaele might be guilty; but so much feelings, egos, national authority, laws, lawyers, national pride, celebrities, magazines etc involved that the real truth may not ever be known and even if truth is discovered and proven beyond any doubt; who will believe it?? there is lack of trust on all sides.

    Meanwhile Meridith was a bright hardworking young lady who was murdered for no real reason and it like she is forgotten in favor of the celebritie defendants

  2. The DNA was probably never there:
    The case certainly centers around a tragedy, the murder of an innocent young woman. But it would not do her memory justice to enter a conviction of people who were not responsible for her death…

  3. If anybody wants to understand the reasons why Amanda Knox was convicted of murder, I recommend reading the translations of the official court documents and court testimony. They are available online at the Meredith Kercher Wiki website:
