The judge who reinstated murder convictions against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito last week said the controversial verdicts were the result of a series of "coincidences" that led to the death of the Meredith Kercher. Amanda's decision to change her plans on the night of Nov. 1 2007, began a series of events that culminated in the brutal killing of Merideth, the Italian court believes. The Italian court sentenced Amanda to 28 years and six months in jail -- a heavy sentence because they say she falsely accused bar owner Patrick Lumumba of being the killer.
Authorities maintain that Amanda and Raffaele changed their stories of what happened that night numerous times. In one account, they claimed to be at his apartment over night and Raffaele said he was on his computer most of the time while Amanda said she read part of a Harry Potter book. But police say they found the Harry Potter book at the crime scene and Amanda never mentioned bringing it home.
