Knox Amanda Knox, the American student whom Italian prosecutors believe participated in the November 2007 murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, today faced a Perugian judge in a closed hearing surrounding the case.
In July, Italian prosecutors recommended that Knox, along with her Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, and another man, Rudy Guede, be charged with the killing of Kercher. Today's hearing, along with subsequent hearings, will determine whether the three suspects will be brought to trial. Knox has been incarcerated in Perugia's La Capanne prison since last winter; this morning in photographs she appeared pale and serious, wearing jeans and a white shirt.
In August, Radar interviewed Curt Knox, Edda Mellas, and Deanna Knox, Knox's parents and sister, as well as other experts familiar with the case. Those interviews will appear in the October/November issue of Radar (on stands October 7) in a feature that makes the case for Amanda's innocence.
