Amanda Knox Retrial Over Killing In Italy
But Knox, 26, who has expressed concern about returning to a country where she spent four years behind bars, was not in court.
She was convicted in 2009 of murdering Kercher, a 21-year old British exchange student who was found stabbed to death in November 2007 in the villa the two young women rented in the central Italian university town of Perugia.
The convictions of Knox and her ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were overturned in 2011 for “lack of evidence.”
After her acquittal, Knox returned to her hometown of Seattle where she has been living since.
