UPDATE: Amanda Knox released a statement about the guilty verdict, expressing her shock at the jury’s decision. “I am frightened and saddened by this unjust verdict. Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system,” she said. The Seattle-resident was sentenced to 28 years in jail.
Knox was not present in the courtroom when the verdict was read and has remained in the United States throughout the trial. She said she was afraid she would be “wrongly convicted” again.
Prosecutor Alessandro Crini previously said that if Knox was found guilty again they would try and extradite her from the U.S.
