As has been reporting, Knox, who was an exchange student at the time, along with her former Italian boyfriend Raffale Sollecito were convicted of murdering her housemate Meredith Kercher, a student from the UK, on November 1, 2007.

She and Sollecito are now in the midst of an appeals trial, which Judge Heavey thinks has a shot at  overturning the original verdicts.
