GUILTY! Amanda Knox Convicted Again For Meredith Kercher’s Murder

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.

Amanda Knox was found guilty by an Italian jury on Thursday in the retrial for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher.

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.

As we previously reported, the Seattle native was convicted in 2009 in the British student Kercher’s murder in Perugia, Italy, getting a 26-year sentence until it was overturned two years later.

Foxy Knoxy’s ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was also found guilty by the jury.
